Many Indianapolis educators make large contributions to our communities, both in and out of the classroom. Kathleen Clark Horrigan teaches and runs the theater program at Lawrence Central High School. She is on the board of Footlite Musicals, where she directs and acts. She also produces one of the city’s most popular theatrical haunted house experiences, The House of Trepidation.

From our Arts and Culture Desk, WFYI's JIll Ditmire spoke with Horrigan about finishing the school year with distance-learning, and how she changed the curriculum to help students process the disruption and fear.
