Exciting news from Our Academy! Karolyn Grimes, who starred as 6 year old Zuzu in the 1946 movie 'It's A Wonderful Life', spoke to students and faculty on Monday. Karolyn shared the movie's beautiful and timeless message of giving of oneself to help others. Karolyn plays the daughter of Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, in this story about how an angel is sent from heaven to help the desperately frustrated businessman, Jimmy Stewart. The angel shows him what life would have been like if Stewart never existed.
Jimmy Stewart's character, George Bailey, spent his life helping others by giving unselfishly of himself to help many of the people in his small town. In the movie, set in 1946, after a business mistake, he contemplates taking his life, thinking he was a failure. The angel helps him see the difference that he made in the lives of all townspeople.
This wonderful opportunity comes to us through Mr. Michael Schmerback, a member of our Board of Trustees and someone who has done much to help others in his life, particularly the children of our Academy.
