Stacy Deemar, who teaches creative drama in the Evanston/Skokie School District 65, was recognized at the district’s board meeting this week for winning the 2015 Award of Excellence in Creative Drama from the Illinois Theatre Association.

She has been teaching creative drama for 14 years in the district’s elementary and middle schools and currently teaches at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Literary and Fine Arts School and Nichols Middle School.

Superintendent Paul Goren congratulated Deemar on the recognition and thanked her for her many years of service to the district and her ability to instill a love of the fine arts in children.
