William R. Donald Jr. Scholarship
Dr. William R Donald Jr. was a high school theater teacher, an arts administrator, a summer theater coordinator, a director, an advocate, a man of deep faith, a colleague, a husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He founded The Highland Stage in 1997.
He had an enormous impact on the lives of many but especially students. Bill Donald knew how very beneficial the arts are to developing minds. His lucky students knew too, because his curriculum shaped them, strengthened them, disciplined them and enriched them.
But, Dr. Donald, or Bill, Mr. Donald, Duck and the many affectionate names we knew him by, left us far too soon. There should have been generations upon generations that benefitted from his influence. Now, it's up to all of us, all of us who knew him and benefitted from his friendship, his wisdom and his guidance, to keep his dream and his legacy alive.
So, because of this, we began the William R. Donald Jr. Memorial Scholarship. The theater arts enrich students in so many recognizable, and sometimes unrecognizable ways. if Bill Donald has helped you, encouraged you or enriched your life in any way, please feel it in your heart to donate.
