Celebrities In The Classrom

Students at Hillside High School will get an opportunity to meet stage and film performers Danny Glover, Antonio Fargas, Margaret Avery, and Starletta DuPois as part of the "Celebrities in the Classroom” program on Friday, November 9th.

Actress Starletta DuPois, along with Antonio Fargas, will work with Hillside Drama students to prepare for Friday evenings season-opening performance of The Color Purple.

The “Celebrities in the Classroom” program gives young people, who are interested in the arts, the opportunity to meet trailblazing artists. "The program has been one of the most inspiring programs at our school said Hillside principal Dr. William Logan. At Hillside, we believe it is important for students to learn from the experts as they have the most authentic experiences to share. I am confident that this year's guests will enrich our students’ lives with their stories."
