ERHS theatre director hired

Michelle Brooks has been hired as the new theatre director at Elk River High School, announced Mike Cunningham, activities director, on Thursday.
Brooks, who teaches in Spring Lake Park and lives in Elk River, succeeds Phil Bologna, who resigned after eight years.
“She puts on good, quality productions, and gets lots of kids involved,” said Cunningham, who was A.D. at Spring Lake Park last year. “I was real impressed by her. She will do well here.”
Brooks will continue to teach in Spring Lake Park, Cunningham said.
The Star News will have a more substantial article on Brooks in Arts and Entertainment  next week.
