The Fliehr Award is dedicated to someone who has given a lifetime of service to theatre and David has certainly done that-both as a High School teacher for 34 years and with his constant dedication to acting in and directing community theatre and keeping it a vibrant part of our community. He has enriched and taught 100s of students and given them the passion of theatre..... many whom continue the theatre tradition in their own communities as adults. He has had at least five students who have made theatre their professional career. He has been a teacher, mentor, and friend to many. We are proud to honor Dave with this most prestigious award.
