Former Wautoma H.S. student stars as “Hunchback” at St. Norbert

To the Editor:

Why should you and the community continue to support the youth in our area? Several years ago a elementary student appeared as Santa’s elf on the McComb Bruchs PAC stage. Last week that same young adult starred in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” at St. Norbert College. He did not play the Hunchback rather the Hunchback came alive in him. The entire audience was spellbound and amazed as Nicholas Surprise brought the story to life. Fortunately I, along with other community members, were in attendance to witness Nick’s continued growth as a young adult. His passion and excellence for theater is only rivaled by his success in the classroom as a biology major.

Why should we continue to support the youth in our area? The answer is simple. We can provide opportunities locally to give our “kids” the best chance of future success. Whether it’s contributing to a program, attending an event or just letting them know we appreciate their effort, all of us have opportunities to make a difference.

Keep up the good work at the Waushara Argus of reporting young people’s contributions to our community.
