Kiana Ledin, who has made theatre an important part of her high school career, will be the only senior graduating this spring as an 11-point Honor Thespian Vice President’s Scholar. This means not only that Kiana has maintained a high GPA but also that she has invested over 1000 hours into theatre pursuits. Kiana plans to pursue her passion at Loyola University Chicago in the fall. We are so proud of Kiana and her dedication to the theatre program at MPHS and wish her the best of luck in college!
