Normadene Carpenter Award 2018

HONORING PAUL TOMEI

Thursday, June 7, 2018 ▪ 6:00 – 8:00 pm ▪ Boeger Winery

Paul Tomei, drama teacher at El Dorado High School for nineteen years, has helped nearly 3,000 students find their voices, soar with confidence, discover empathy and new friendships, and learn to communicate through the powerful medium of dramatic art. The recipient of numerous honors and awards for teaching, directing and producing, Paul is a dedicated and passionate educator whose students have gone on to perform on Broadway, in regional theatre, and in television and film projects. What they learn in his theatre classes they keep for life.

This June we will celebrate the second year of the Normadene Carpenter Award, which recognizes extraordinary commitment to culture and creativity. This year’s special theme is Arts in Education, because, as we know, arts improve academic performance, enhance civic engagement, and help young people understand themselves and each other. Paul Tomei makes this happen for his students year after year, and we are very proud to honor him.
