Corey Hale has taught journalism for the last decade at Lewisville High School, advising the award-winning Farmers' Harvest school newspaper. Last year, Hale was selected as Lewisville High School's "Teacher of the Year". Over the summer, Hale scheduled weight loss surgery so that he could recover and be back to work by the time school started, but his plans didn't go that well.

Ten days after the invasive surgery, called a "duodenal switch", an intestinal stitch failed, allowing waste to spill into his abdominal cavity. Hale developed an infection that nearly killed him. In terrific pain, Hale was rushed to the emergency room by Lewisville paramedics, and spent the next month in the hospital, undergoing surgeries, kept sedated, and breathing on a ventilator.

Hale came out of the sedation, and off the ventilator slowly, and is now in a Corinth medical facility undergoing physical therapy. His family credits his faith in God, and the power of prayer for him pulling through.

Fundraisers to Benefit Corey Hale
Hale's friends and coworkers have put together a website for Hale to keep people apprised of his progress, and to try to raise funds to help Hale with medical bills and lost income, since Hale will likely lose at least a few months of income.

Coinciding with Tuesday night's Open House and Ribbon Cutting for the new Lewisville High School, Hale's friends, coworkers, members of Village Church, and PTSA will have a Benefit Spaghetti Dinner and Auction. Tickets to the dinner can be purchased online for a suggested donation of $5 per person. Many local businesses (including LTJ) and other donors have contributed merchandise or gift certificates to be used for a silent auction. The general public is invited, and you can RSVP via the Facebook Event page for the dinner.

On Friday night, prior to LHS's Homecoming football game against Flower Mound, the group is having hot dogs and chips in the LHS Cafeteria for a suggested donation of $2.

The family is posting updates on Hale's condition on the helpcorey.com website. Donations are welcome even if you can't attend either of the fundraisers. Email Nicole Franczvai - franczvain@lisd.net or John Hicks - johnhicks24@gmail.com with any questions.

GLCT Presents "Sunset Boulevard" Oct. 19th - Nov 4th

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by paheena on 2012/9/29 15:33:24 (658 reads)

Open in new windowThe Greater Lewisville Community Theatre is proud to begin its 30th Anniversary season with the regional premiere of Sunset Boulevard, featuring the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber with book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black.

The show runs weekends October 19 – November 4, 2012. Performances occur Fridays and Saturdays at 8 P.M. and Sundays at 3 P.M. A performance has been added on Thursday, October 25, at 8 P.M. due to the popularity of this show.

Sunset Boulevard weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of “talkies”. Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screen writer Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, the subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion. The Broadway production of Sunset Boulevard earned 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score and Book of a Musical.

Chris Robinson directs Sunset Boulevard, with assistant director Eddie Floresca and musical director Charlie Kim. Music will by provided by the largest group of musicians to play for a GLCT musical thus far. Caroline Rivera will bring the role of Norma Desmond to life and Emily Ford is Betty Schaefer. Joe Gillis is played by Michael McCray and Tom DeWester is Max von Mayerling. Michael and Tom are both familiar to GLCT audiences, previously seen in the comedy Room Service, and the musicals Rent and Great American Trailer Park Musical respectively. Rounding out the cast is a stellar group of more than 10 supporting actors.

GLCT is located at 160 W. Main St. in Old Town Lewisville. Tickets are $19 (adults) and $16 (65 +over/18-under). Season tickets are still available at a savings of 30% to 33%. Call for reservations (recommended) – (972) 221-SHOW (7469). Additional information is available at www.GLCT.org.
