He was an Opening Act student for three years and has remained part of the community for the two years since graduation. He has always excelled in the arts, performing in plays such as Future Thinking, Tennessee Williams’s Suddenly Last Summer. He has also experienced being on “The Today Show” in 2016, alongside Josh Groban and fellow Opening Act students.
