The incredible Audra McDonald has received the ultimate honor of receiving the National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama at the White House. She was a graduate of the Roosevelt School of the Arts, where today’s students trod in her footsteps literally, on stage, backstage and in the classrooms of this magnet program.
What about naming the auditorium/theater for her and having a wall in the theater lobby dedicated to her triumphs? It seems like a fitting tribute for a remarkable and much-loved Fresno superstar.
Audra also deserves a citywide honor which could become a local and tourist magnet at the new Fulton Mall.
