Under the direction of Blade Healey, Jake Spadie, and Catherine Parker the following students advanced to area, Isabel Campos, Sean Donnely, Desirea Empie, Nicole Galindo, TrentGranberry, David Harrison, Nathan Johnson, Hailee Lattimer, Chrissy  Leady, Drew Lewis, Lauren Lewis, Tristen Mullins, Caroline Onwuzu,  Nick Payne,  Sara Pearson, Dillon Pellegalle, Abby Soriano, Mira Urbassek, Alyssa White, Chloe Williams, Aidan Wilt, and Robbie Wilt.

In addition to the advancement of the entire play, Chrissy Leady earned All-star crew for special effects lighting, Drew Lewis received Honorable Mention All-Star Cast, Nick Payne and Sara Pearson received All-Star Cast and once again, Aidan Wilt was named Best Actor in the competition.

“Since it’s only my second year in theater, I feel humble and unworthy to be named as Best Actor twice in one season, but it feels good,” said Wilt. “I feel as if any one of my cast mates were just as capable of earning this award.”

Culinary Arts students Maya Reazin, Paula Castillo and Sammy Cantu provided food for all schools that were present. \Chase Miller, Garrett Herring, and Jacob Pugh were among the students who set up the stage and worked the booth; along with students, Carlie Green and Elizabeth Turner that helped with rehearsals on Friday, March 24.

“We received many compliments on our crew and our food from other schools,” said UIL coordinater, Amanda Adair said. “As well as from the contest director. We have some fantastic students at Chapel Hill.”

UIL Academics students helped host the other schools Reagan Woods, Alesha Lewis, Stephy Andersen, Vanessa Gonzalez, Shelby Crehan, Taylor Rasco, Cheyli Perez and 8th grader Brady Bagwell.
