UCS grad talks about the actor's life
Christopher Howe is a member of the Screen Actors Guild, which just hosted its annual awards ceremony.
My class (1978) was the first class to go all the way through Malow Jr. High and Eisenhower. The schools both opened in 1973. While at Malow, I took drama class and a radio/television class and loved it. My brothers and I spent lots of time with a cassette recorder making up our own radio shows where we'd DJ, make up commercials, and songs. The television class had a portable black and white reel to reel video tape machine and camera (a huge technological advancement for the time) and I got into filmmaking. Soon my brothers and friends were making movies; first with an old 8mm wind-up Brownie movie camera and later with Super 8. We all took turns directing and acting. I imagined myself as a sort of action hero like "Mannix" or "Banacek" as we did all kinds of stunts.
At Eisenhower, I took a drama class and appeared in my first play called "Boys and Ghouls Together". I soon found myself doing the morning announcements and MCing the talent shows. I joined the Drama Club. MORE.

Students offer perspectives on how social media helps them learn
I am fortunate to meet regularly with a great group of secondary students in the context of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Board (SSAB). Through our meetings, students have an opportunity to share their thoughts about their high school and Utica Community Schools in general and how the district is preparing them for future success.
