Building A Dream

What do you do when your small school needs a theater space? If you're Tami Maytum, you organize a barn raising! When the Malcolm High School drama coach won a $10,000 national grant, it kickstarted her plan to build a practice space for her drama students. The Malcolm community rallied around Maytum and her students - raising another $50,000 in cash donations along with volunteering their muscle, skilled labor, and construction equipment. The result is a brand new home for the Malcolm High School drama program.
