Ben Frimmer '91 BFA Acting Nominated for Award

Congratulations to BEN FRIMMER '91 BFA Acting

Today I was nominated for the TONY Excellence in Theatre Education Award. The nomination itself is an incredible honor. It makes me think of the many theatre educators who served as my mentors...Al Pia (Staples High School) and Arno Selco (Ithaca College)

To those who supported my nomination, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Watching your video submission and reading the letters of recommendation brought more than a tear to my eye.

Theatre has has given me so much in life and the opportunity to share that with my students is beyond what I could ever have dreamed for as a child. Moving from the dream of being a professional actor to becoming a theatre educator was not a path I had planned but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I am truly honored, I am truly blessed, I am truly thankful
