Helena High drama teacher Rob Holter named Educator of the Year
News from Helena Independent Record:

A Helena thespian is teacher of the year.

Rob Holter, drama teacher at Helena High for 23 years, recently received the highest honor from his peers and was named Educator of the Year by the Helena Education Association.

Terry Beaver, a retired HHS science teacher, recalls how students instantly liked Holter when he began with the Helena School District.

“He’s always been good for kids,” the recently re-elected school board member said. “Kids have always been appreciative of him.”

Beaver said Holter has done well for the drama program at HHS.

“Production wise — he is very, very good,” he said.

Sophomore Raina Hayes moved to Helena from Wyoming last year. She’s played the piano since she was 5 but never been involved in the theater. That is until she met Holter.

“I don’t think I would have even started theater without him,” Hayes said Monday. “He can totally relate to us. He has a sense of authority but he cares.”

Hayes credits Holter for her love for the theater and she says she’s looking forward to trying out all aspects — acting, music, backstage and technology.

This is Rachel Bauer’s second year with Holter and next year she’ll be in his theater III class.

“Mr. Holter is the best teacher and he deserves the award,” she said. “He inspires us to get as high as we can in life.” continues on Helena Independent Record

Budget cuts are forcing the closure of the program which opened in 1919. However sad Principal Tim Kelly is to see Marysville Adult Education close its doors, he was clear about one thing — Monday night’s graduation was a celebration.

“I want to remember the years we were able to change lives for tens of thousands of people,” he said. “It created more jobs for them and their families. It created more opportunities and doors opening. It created hopefulness.”
