Oswego High School Junior Amanda Plonka recently completed a two-week summer camp at The Second City in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood.
Amanda was the recipient of a full $1,000 scholarship for the camp, which ran from June 22 to July 3. Letters of recommendation for the scholarship were written by OHS Theater Arts teacher Karen Ferguson and Amanda's employer, John Zidlicky, of The Garden Faire in Downtown Oswego.
The camp taught improv, sketch comedy and stand up skills with a final performance given July 3 on the Main Stage at The Second City.
Amanda commuted everyday into the city via the Metra train and continued to The Second City via the CTA Brown Line.
