KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) — A Kinston elementary school invited a special guest to zoom in on their theatre class. And, they reacted exactly how fans would when meeting a Broadway star.
On Monday, these kids had their class taught by award-winning actress Victoria Clark.
Ms. Holly Holder invited Victoria Clark to their Monday morning class. Holder and Clark’s roots go back to Duke University. The award-winning actress is a former student of Clark’s at the University.
Now, Holder runs a theatre program at Southeast Elementary School in Kinston. She invited Clark to teach Monday’s class as part of a month-long women’s history celebration.
My students who really love this class and value this class, I’m excited for them to realize this is something they can make a career out of and do for the rest of their life if they want to.Holly Holder, theatre arts teacher at Southeast Elementary School
Holder hopes Clark’s journey from a small town to the big stage inspires her students that anything is possible.
