CHERRY VALLEY _ Fifth grade student Michelle Garretson wrote and directed and performed in a three-act play about Spanish explorers entitled, "You Were There."
The production included 14 of her classmates, including Michael Stalter, who played an aged Christopher Columbus, and was performed for students in grades two through five in their classrooms.
The play was the result of an independent study project she completed as a participant of the EXCITE program, an enrichment course for students with exceptional abilities.
