With Step Sing a distant memory, please allow me to call your attention to an inspirational moment from the show.  One of our students, Ryan Penney, suffered a horrible accident last summer.  In fact, he was told that it was unlikely that he would ever walk again . . . but he performed for three consecutive nights on the Wright Center stage last week.  To hear Ryan’s story (and his mother’s commentary) click on the Step Sing link below, follow the page to the bottom, then click on the video link.  If you are short on time, Ryan’s segment begins at 3:04.

The world is better because of Ryan Penney and the people who love him.
