THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING KARIN’S FOLLIES

It was WONDERFUL to have so many alumni grace the Donovan stage in honor of our beloved theatre director…Mrs. Karin Krenek.  All proceeds from this event
will benefit the Karin Krenek Scholarship Fund.
We are very grateful for the support of our SJHS/MDHS/Donovan community.

 

  

This special shirt is still available on our Farro's online store to commemorate the event. The front of the shirt displays the logos from all of the productions that Mrs. Krenek directed. The back of the shirt has her very special message
to all of her beloved students (in Karin's handwriting),
"You are valued, you are cherished, you are loved. Always, loved."  Again, all proceeds will benefit the scholarship. See link below.
