A Tribute to Mac Damron

On February 13, Godwin High's beloved Drama teacher - Mac Damron - passed away over a month before a scheduled ceremony where the school's theater would be dedicated in his name. With several decades of teaching experience, Mr. Damron changed the lives of hundreds, even thousands, of students, one of which is our host, George Sirois. So George decided to reach out to his classmates from those years to see if anyone wanted to come on Excelsior Journeys to share some stories about Mr. Damron. Three classmates were able to accept: musician & animator Sruli Broocker, mother & photographer Kelly Wright Myers, and the first returning guest on Excelsior Journeys, artist & author Elizabeth Meggs.
