Mendoza Wins STP Award

Theatre teacher Gary Mendoza has been selected as St. Tammany Parish's "Performing Artist of the Year!" Gary Mendoza said he became hooked on theater while a student at Pearl River High. He earned a bachelor's at Southeastern Louisiana University and a master's at the University of New Orleans. Mendoza has performed onstage at Tulane, Skyfire and Cutting Edge theaters, and has won several Ginny Awards at Slidell Little Theatre. He is co-artistic director of the Covington Louisiana Actor’s Playhouse System, a summer theater program for high school students that just celebrated its 21st season.

Mendoza has been the theater teacher at Covington High School since 2005, and many of his students have gone on to win awards in competitions that range from the National Shakespeare Competition to the Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Competition. He recently was awarded a fellowship to study for three weeks at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London as part of its Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance program.

He along with other winners was honored on January 28th at the St. Tammany Justice Center.
