Each year, the eight KCACTF regions honor individuals or organizations that have made extraordinary contributions to the teaching and producing of theatre and who have significantly dedicated their time, artistry and enthusiasm to the development of the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. Most importantly, recipients have demonstrated a strong commitment to the values and goals of KCACTF and to excellence in educational theatre. It is the most prestigious regional award given by KCACTF and is considered one of the great honors in theatre education.
Professor and Head of Theatre Studies Bob Nelson, University of Utah and Catherine Zublin, Weber State University have been selected as the 2018 KCACTF Region 8 Gold Medallion recipients.
Nelson and Zublin will be recognized during the Awards Dinner at Festival 50 in Mesa, Arizona, February 14-17, 2018.
