Answer: My parents founded High Valley Arts Foundation, a Midway based charitable foundation dedicated to the arts in Midway. They are currently pursuing funding and approval for the Midway Center for the Arts, which would be a significant addition to arts education and access in Heber/Midway. I am a lifelong theater brat, my mother has been writing, producing and directing plays, that my dad often starred in. . While that talent has skipped a generation (my son inherited it, not me), I have a deep appreciation for the Arts and the power that they have to change lives.

Explanations: I'm happy to discuss further my answers, I don't have enough information on the issue that I marked unsure on, so any additional info on that would be helpful. Thank you!
