Outstanding Contributions to the Arts Awards will be presented to:

Amy Perlmutter, Carrie Codell & Amy Greenebaum

for their many years of volunteer work on Highland Park High School's Focus on the Arts program. In 1964, HPHS developed the concept of a unique arts outreach program that would expose students and the community to the world of visual, performing and communication arts. The mission of FOCUS is to increase appreciation and global understanding of the arts and of the professionals engaged in them. Presented every other year, Focus explores the many facets of art; not as distant, esoteric disciplines, but as the day-to-day creativity of truly gifted, diverse people. The goal of FOCUS is to educate & communicate the universal arts language to HPHS students, as well as surrounding communities. Participating students experience many forms of art themselves, thus expanding and enriching their lives forever. Hundreds of volunteers including PTA members, HPHS staff & faculty, students, and community members, work together to coordinate three days and three nights of programs, all free of charge and open to the public.      Special Thanks to Pamela Olin and ForbesG Laser Artistry. for creating unique awards for the honorees.

Amy Perlmutter - Amy feels appreciative and humbled to be one of the recipients of the “Outstanding Contributions to the Arts” award. While she has devoted eight years to Focus on the Arts, she knows that Focus could not have achieved its current status, as a unique and exceptional contribution to the arts, without the time and energy of all the past Focus coordinators, supporters and contributors as well as the support of the 200+ yearly volunteers, the generous time and energy commitment of participating artists, teachers, staff and District representatives. Amy loves walking the halls of the high school and seeing all the smiling, friendly and excited students as Focus nears each year The “shout out” by a talented athlete who says, “I never knew I could draw” and witnessing a quiet student stand up and find her voice while participating in a poetry slam brings her incredible joy. Amy grew up in Highland Park and she and her children have benefited from all the opportunities it affords. She is honored that she has been given the opportunity to volunteer her support through different roles, including the Executive Boards at Indian Trail, Elm Place and Highland Park High School, soccer coach, softball coach and even a baseball coach. She has learned and grown as an individual through her involvement. She says “Thank You”!

Carrie Codell is very honored to be recognized for her role as a coordinator for Highland Park High School’s Focus on the Arts, the most exciting and unique high school arts festival anywhere.  She considers it a privilege to have had the opportunity to serve the high school and community as a Focus coordinator.  Carrie is extemely grateful for the generous contributions of countless parent, student and staff volunteers along with local businesses, foundations and community members who willingly gave so much to make Focus a successful reality.  This was Carrie’s third and final Focus and she would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank her fellow parent coordinators Amy Perlmutter, Amy Greenebaum, Deborah Zionts, Colleen Kelley and Peggy Orloff.   For Carrie, experiencing such wonderful teamwork and seeing the incredible impact Focus has on the students makes being part of Focus so rewarding. Carrie would also like to thank her family for all their support.

Amy Greenebaum is no stranger to the arts or to volunteerism. A native of  Highland Park for 21 years, she has worked for several local arts organizations including the now defunct Opera Theater North (formerly Opera Theater Highland Park) and Apple Tree Theatre as Marketing Director. For eight years -- four Focuses-- she has volunteered her time to this extraordinary event, first as a committee leader for Drama, and then as a PTO Coordinator. For Focus 09 and 11, she was responsible for outreach, publicity, and assisted with the Drama Workshops. She was also responsible for coordinating and organizing unique arts workshops during Focus for the special education students at HPHS. She is sorry to leave Focus, but her children, 2005 and 2010 graduates have left the nest! She says she looks forward to attend every Focus in years to come!
