About 20 volunteers with the Clark State Performing Arts Center in Springfield were rewarded with three free credit hours for their work serving patrons attending shows.

Clark State President Jo Alice Blondin said in a statement that volunteers are important to the center and the college.

“We value our Performing Arts Center volunteers, and it was time to show them how much we appreciate them,” Blondin said. “Many of our volunteers wish to pursue higher education or encourage a child or grandchild to do the same.”
