In an act of Paul Quinn's signature servant leadership, the Thespian Club performed "God's Trombones" at the Promise House in Dallas on February 16, 2013. Promise House embraces homeless, runaway and at-risk teens in order to give them support, encouragement and hope to improve their qualities of life. Their programs cover the vital needs of teens, including emergency shelter, transitional living, pregnant and parenting teen services, individual, group and family counseling, street outreach and educational intervention.
Perhaps the Quinnite happiest to perform that night was Anita Crethers, who was once a Promise House resident. Crethers, who is a junior, has gone from a homeless teen mother to one of the College's stand-out students. She works in the Center for Fundraising and Philanthropy and serves as president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals' collegiate chapter at Paul Quinn. Afterwards, a certificate of appreciation was awarded to the Thespian Club by Promise House. The group donated all of the proceeds from the February 16 production of "God's Trombones" to the College.
