Presque Isle High School sophomore Danica Haskell is joining the Wintergreen Arts Center.

Haskell will be an assistant teacher for the Summer Arts Program. She will be assisting Wintergreen’s Shaye McHatten with a series of one-week Summer Camps along with a six-week choreographed dance class.

Danica is no stranger to the Wintergreen Arts Center. She served as a volunteer youth mentor for Wintergreen’s HeART program in conjunction with the Presque Isle Housing Authority. Haskell also served as a volunteer assistant for Wintergreen’s new choreographed dance program.

Danica, who has a long and unique history with Wintergreen, said she is very excited about this opportunity. “As a child, I was in the first ever class at Wintergreen.  I regularly attended classes then began to volunteer, and now I work here!”

Community service is one of Danica's many passions.She was recently named a finalist for the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards for her volunteer service at a local animal shelter.
