“Tonight, we not only honor the work that you’ve done, but who you are, and how you have affected our community with your commitment, dedication, and love for not only theater but what really makes it special is for one another,” said Brown during his speech. 

The Bryan Max Bernfeld scholarship, a prize recognizing and celebrating North alum Bryan Max Bernfeld was awarded to Senior Audrey Sanger.

“I feel very honored,” said Sanger. “TheaterInk has been such a huge part of my time here for the last four years, and just to be compared to someone who did so much in TheaterInk and obviously left a huge impact is just so meaningful and amazing to me and I just feel so grateful.”

The awards night left many emotional, bursting into tears as well as smiles.
