On April Fools’ Day, students, faculty, and friends gathered for Fool Me Once: A Talent Show in the HUB. (Above: Dr. Fred Johnson reads Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss). We raised just over $60 for Project Hope Spokane in our tip jar.
Thanks to Krystal Valle (’13), our event photographer. Krystal describes herself as “excellent at pretending to be good at things like writing, designing, photography, baking, and sometimes, on a really spectacular day, a nice slow jog. Her real talents hail from her dry humor full of cheeky remarks.” (Above, Professor Maggie Wolcott demonstrates the art of making jam. She also passed out sweet samples.)
Cameron Parker, above, plays a medley on his ocarina.
It takes a village to put on a talent show. Thanks to the tireless Annie Stillar, to Diana Cater for the promotional materials, to Karina Basso and Fred Johnson for serious tech support and piano-moving abilities, to Liv Larsen Andrews and Arlo Andrews for reading us a bedtime story, to faculty support from Casey Andrews, Maggie Wolcott, Amy Rice, Katherine Karr-Cornejo, Fred Johnson, Laurie Lamon, Laura Bloxham, Doug Sugano, and Brytton Bjorngaard. High-fives of appreciation to our student performers: John Taylor, Ruth Nalty, Rosie McFarland, Cameron Parker, Karina Basso, Brett Bajema, and Blaine Eldredge.
