We would like to congratulate Joy Grubbs, the music teacher at Station, for being selected as the 2019 Ohio Educational Theater Association – Teacher of the year. We are proud of her commitment and dedication to the performing arts community in Hilliard.

Here are a few words from the nomination form that won her the award: Joy truly has a legacy in Hilliard theater beyond the sixth-grade. She brings back former students as assistant directors, stage managers or leads for the sixth-graders on technical crew. These students have a chance to grow as professionals and leaders. But it’s not only students that Joy engages. The whole family participates in Build Days to make sets, props and costumes. This gives parents an investment beyond taxi-ing to and from rehearsals or watching the end product.
