This week’s RHS Arts Student of the Week is Senior Lyssa Daniels, nominated by theater teacher Kaelynn VanBuren. In nominating Daniels, VanBuren says, “During our summer stock production of Urinetown, Lyssa really found a new level of creativity. As her teacher and director I was impressed by her growth and commitment.” An arts lover, Daniels participates in choir (Advanced Women’s Ensemble) and takes piano lessons in addition to acting.

Crediting her teacher, she says “Miss VanBuren has been an indescribably extraordinary mentor for me and many others. She challenges all her students in a way that applies perfectly to each student individually.” She continues, “The arts have helped me find many new relationships with wonderful people. It has created a home-like feeling for me at school and taught me things about myself that I never would have expected.”

VanBuren passes the credit back to Daniels, saying “Lyssa always gives 110%. She leads by a quiet, focused example. She rises to every challenge, creating wonderful characters. She is the exact type of student that directors love to work with.”

Daniels hopes to pursue a career in music education or musical theater.

RHS Arts Student of the Week is a new initiative being spearheaded by the arts faculty at Rockford High School.
