NDPA STUDENT AT WEBER STATE STORYTELLING FESTIVAL – Last week, 7th grader Angel H., performed in the annual Weber State University Storytelling Festival in Layton. He was selected from a performance he gave in January at Syracuse Arts Academy. His performance was lively and well-received by a room full of elementary kids from around the valley. The national storyteller in the room commended him and even made a connection after the performance. Angel and a handful of junior high students got to experience the storytelling festival for the rest of the day, and they listened to storytellers of all different levels. We’re really proud of Angel’s great work and we’re looking forward to possibly hosting a storytelling event of our own. Stay tuned in the fall!
