The Blinn College Theatre Arts Program was recently recognized by Mayor Milton Tate and the Brenham City Council for 50 years of success.

The honoring of the Arts Program took place on Thursday, Nov. 17, at the recent Brenham City Council meeting.

“The mission of the Blinn College Theatre Arts Program in Brenham and Bryan is to provide a quality education through study, application, and experience,” Tate said. “Blinn is committed to engaging the college and area communities with a diverse offering of venues, interactions, and performances.”

During the meeting, Tate read a proclamation highlighting the accomplishments of the program since it began in 1967.

In attendance at the meeting were Brad Nies, director of Brenham Campus Theatre Arts; Dr. Debbi Vavra, assistant academic dean; Dr. Marcelo Bussiki, academic dean; and Mel Waxler, executive vice president and general counsel.

“This is one of the highest honors that can be given to the Theatre Arts Program,” Nies, who has been with the Theatre Arts Program for 26 years, said. “The proclamation demonstrates that we not only serve our students, but we also provide quality entertainment for our community.”
