Corin Wells, our Class Registrar for close to two years is taking on a new role coordinating extra-curricular activities for the theater and the Training Center (i.e. arranging parties, group comedy outings, and other special events). “Over the last few years as the Training Center has grown exponentially, I have always wanted more opportunities for students to mix and mingle with each other,” said PHIT’s founder and Executive Director Greg Maughan. “I’m really excited that Corin has decided to take this on, and I can’t wait for her name to become synonymous with partying – just like Miley Cyrus, P!nk, or Oingo Bongo.” Look for more social events as a result of Corin’s help starting in the Training Center’s fall session later this year.
Corin’s new role also means that PHIT is now searching for a new Class Registrar.
