Jared Grimes, Tony Nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical (Funny Girl).

"I'm feeling like I'm on cloud nine," said Jared Grimes, a 2001 Donna Reed Foundation national scholarship recipient in dance.

" I woke up and my phone was lighting up so I was like let me figure out what's going on, and then everything started to descend upon me. ... This is just a blessing beyond any other blessing that I can think of at the moment. I am eternally grateful. I just want to get better, keep singing acting, and dancing, and fight harder for the higher levels of the craft."
