Paul Vincent in Hall of Fame

Paul Vincent of Vincent Lighting Systems was one of two long-time industry professionals recently inducted into the Ohio Educational Theatre Association's (OEdTA) Hall of Fame. The other inductee was Robert Winters of Ohio University.

During the ceremony, J.R. Simons, product manager for Vincent and an OEdTA board member, said "Paul stresses doing things because they are the right thing to do and not just because they are good for the bottom line." Mr. Vincent's commitment to the Thespian community has been evident through his company which, for nearly two decades, has provided OEdTA State Conferences with affordable rental gear and workshop presenters. He was instrumental in preparing and presenting a professional development workshop for EdTA in 2002. Vincent Lighting Systems has sponsored several summer internships and currently employs several lifetime Thespians.
