February 22, 2021
Tapaynga Hill is February's Career Path Intern of the Month. Hill is a senior studying Theatre at Idaho State University. Hill currently holds a Career Path Internship with the School of Performing Arts, where she writes theatre and music event press releases and creates email blasts. Hill has also helped coordinate events with other schools around Idaho and perform community outreach to identify donors for the School of Performing Arts’ programs and scholarships.
“I've loved learning promotion of the things that I do and am passionate about. Learning how to organize events like shows and our fantastic new "Afterglows" is probably my favorite part of what I've done,” Hill said. “I've learned a lot of valuable skills from my position that will be super helpful in the future for promoting myself and my projects in the industry, and the ability to do community outreach and coordinate events are great professional skills for any job. Ultimately, working under my supervisor, Meg Stover, has been truly wonderful and inspiring for my professional life and future plans, learning from such a powerful and professional woman drives me to do the best I can in all aspects of my life, personal and professional.”
Hill will continue her work until she graduates in May 2021.
“I have been so impressed with this woman’s drive for excellence and professionalism,” said Meg Stover, the School of Performing Arts Business and Promotions Manager, and Hill’s supervisor. “Tapaynga is always busy but handles the stress of school, work, and a lead role in a production like it’s no sweat. I have no doubt she will continue to excel in life!”
Originally from Pavillion, Wyoming, Hill hopes to find work with a theatre company after graduation. She would like to eventually pursue graduate school and continue her pursuits within the world of theatre. In her spare time, Hill enjoys taking care of her plants, hanging out with friends, and doing improv with the PAC Rats improv club on campus.
