Forsyth Central High School senior Maggie Little is one of six students in the nation recently elected to serve as an International Thespian Officer.
An affiliate of the Cincinnati-based Educational Theatre Association, the International Thespian Society strives to promote excellence in high school theater and student achievement across the country and around the globe.
As an officer, Little will represent Region 3, which covers the Southeast U.S. She will be attending many Southern high school theater conferences, with her first official stop Oct. 18 in Kentucky.
She recently represented the society at a booth during the annual Broadway Cares Equity Fights Aids Flea Market in New York City. The booth raised about $1,800.
Little is also preparing for workshops on leadership and arts advocacy, a task made easier after she met with several leaders in the theater and arts community.
They included Joseph Norton, director of education and outreach for Broadway Cares Equity Fights Aids and Alex Sarian, director of finance and new business for Lincoln Center.
