SFA alumnus directs high school theatre to state championship

SFA alumnus and Crandall High School theatre teacher and director Daniel Gambill led his students to the 4-A Conference One-Act Play championship. It was the second time a One-Act Play he has directed has made it to the University Interscholastic League’s state competition.

“For years I have dreamed about what that moment would feel like, but I really can’t describe it,” Gambill said. “I looked at my students and they were all crying, clapping and hugging. It was magical. I’ll never forget what they looked like as they reveled in our success.”

A third-generation Lumberjack, Gambill attended SFA to study secondary education and received his Bachelor of Arts in theatre education in 2010. Even though he is a direct descendant of Sam Houston, Gambill said attending SFA is somewhat of a family legacy.

A reception is planned for 5 to 7 p.m. June 2 at The Cole Art Center.

Daniel, who died in 2015, began teaching at SFA in 1967. In 1997, the John and Doris Daniel Scholarship in Art was established and is ongoing. In December 2005, Daniel became professor emeritus and retired after 38 years of teaching sculpture, design and drawing. In 2007-08, a retrospective show of his work had venues at both The Cole Art Center in Nacogdoches and at the Museum of East Texas in Lufkin. Daniel’s artwork is in collections in Nacogdoches and across Texas, as well as in other states.

One might say, “If a house is built in the woods, can you see it?”

It might be difficult to determine whether you’re inside relaxing or outside in nature due to the mind-bending visuals of the “Disappear Retreat,” a waste-, water- and energy-free house built by Coulson.
