In honor of Janis Williams DeForest Drama and English teacher's 25 years, I have set up a scholarship fund raising page. This recipient will be selected by Jan each year and the student shall be entering into the theatrical world in some way or another.

Hello. My name is Tara Williams Jones and I am setting up fundraising for a scholarship honoring Janis Williams English and Drama teacher at DeForest High School in Wisconsin. She has been a teacher and drama coach at this particular school since 1990. She has a long standing community following and has inspired thousands of students over the last 25 years. Each year students will come back and find her to thank her for all the many things she has done for them over the years. The first musical I was allowed to choreograph for her was FAME my senior year in 1992. Since then she has hired me through the High School to choreograph several other shows. It is an honor to be able to work with her on these projects.  She does one musical every other year, one acts, forensics,  a 3 act straight show once or twice a year,  runs a summer drama program for all ages, occasionally still acts in plays, teaches drama classes at the High School level and much much more. Many times a lot of the supplies for the plays are paid for out of her own pocket. Just because she cares enough to have the kids have the most enjoyable experience they deserve to have. I decided after 25 years of selflessness that we should start a scholarship in her honor for a student in the dramatic program at her High School who is most deserving. She can inevitably decide who the scholarship recipient will be from year to year but my hopes is that it is someone who desires to enter into the theatrical world in some way or another. Please help me in honoring my wonderful talented Mother by contributing what you can to help further someone's education. I thank you for your support and help in making this scholarship an annual tradition for the DeForest Drama Department. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely Tara Williams Jones.
