GLEN ROCK, NJ - Caroline Torpey was named October Citizen of the Month at Glen Rock High School.

According to school officials, Caroline has an unwavering positive attitude and has taken leadership qualities "to the point of professionalism." For this year’s fall theatre production, she went above and beyond the call of duty in her role as assistant director. Her instincts for how to keep a show in order from start to finish meant she anticipated needs, often without having to consult with the directors. She led rehearsals on occasion, school officials reported, when the directors needed to tend to urgent family matters.

"Not many students would be able to handle the responsibility of this task as well as she did," school officials said. "Beyond this, she manages all members of the cast and crew with a warmth and caring that truly embodies the family spirit of the Theatre Company."
