An update from Whitney Hershberger: Since graduation I have completed a year of service with AmeriCorps at Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids, where I received hands-on experience with non-profit administration. During my year of service I also took on directing jobs, coming back to the GV Shakespeare Festival to direct the green show. Then I was hired to act as the interim performing arts director at Hudsonville High School. I have just completed directing "Two Gentleman of Verona" for Grand Rapids' Heritage Theatre Group. This past year I have served as a member of the Young Alumni Council for Grand Valley. But soon I will be leaving the Grand Rapids area to pursue further education at Southern Utah University where I will earn an M.F.A. in Arts Administration.
