The Unified Arts department would like to extend congratulations to Scott Wilson on being named an Educational Theatre Association: Ohio Chapter 2017 Hall of Fame Inductee.
Scott Wilson has taught theatre in Westerville, Olentangy and Columbus Public Schools for 19 years, directing numerous plays and musicals in that time. His work with students at Centennial High helped earn the school the 2011 Outstanding School Award from the Educational Theatre Association. From 2012-2014, Wilson was a member of the writing team for the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards, helping drive the conversation and establish national standards for theatre. Since 2001, he has been a member of the Ohio EdTA Board of Directors, serving on a variety of committees and as chapter director from 2009-2013.
"During Scott’s tenure as Ohio Chapter Director, he started the Send a Troupe grant in order to help troupes that couldn't afford to come to conference,” says Pat Santanello, Ohio EdTA co-director. “Scott is always thinking of what benefits students, whether it's raising money for thespian scholarships, raising money for Send a Troupe, or working with the International Thespian Officers. He is a reminder of the impact one person can make."
Wilson recently achieved his Masters Degree in School Counseling and is now a Guidance Counselor at East High School. Over his many years in education, Wilson has demonstrated his dedication to Ohio students through his creation of curriculum, his establishing of key educational standards, a focus on troupe development, directing, and producing.
Hall of Fame members are recognized for their extraordinary commitment to the Ohio EdTA mission and values. Gonzalez and Wilson will be formally inducted at the state conference in Dublin, Ohio on March 25, 2017.
