She Wins! (And I'm a Part of It!)

Sara Staley just won a Jefferson Award, a community service honor given by the San Francisco Chronicle, CBS 5-TV, and KCBS-FM. The Chronicle reports:
As the director of YouthAware, part of the New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco, Sara Staley helps students deal with violence, racism, homophobia, body image and HIV prevention.

YouthAware...produces seven plays that are performed at elementary, middle and high schools around Northern California.
Why am I so excited for her? Well, a play I wrote for the company has been touring Bay Area schools for a few years now:
"OutSpoken," by Prince Gomolvilas, which runs in the spring, was designed to educate young people on the California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act.
Hey! That's me! I wrote that! You read a monologue from it! Yay!

Congratulations, Sara!
