Riley Hoffman, a senior, has received a lead female role in the fall play all four years at Wheat Ridge. She has also acted as a crew leader for the play and stage manager for spring musicals. Riley has received much praise for her acting and set design, even being nominated for a Bobby G Award in set design her sophomore year. Outside of play, Riley takes rigorous classes, does volunteer work and is an officer for the National Honors Society, National Art Honors Society, and Thespian Troupe. While Riley enjoys spending her time in the art studio and in the auditorium, she hopes to major in Biology, eventually moving into forensic science. She would like to thank all of her directors, past and present, for pushing her to succeed while taking risks; the Wheat Ridge Staff for supporting fall play; the students through long rehearsals; and her friends and family for keeping her motivated and caffeinated. And finally, she would like to thank the cast of Harvey, for taking her in freshmen year, helping her to adapt to high school, and for giving her memories of a family she will never forget.
