    Solange Signoret and her sister Juliette have performed in Idyllwild Arts Summer Program musicals and drama productions for the past several years thanks to scholarship funding by Idyllwild resident David Martin.  Last summer, Solange was the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz, and her sister has performed in Shakespeare and song and dance skits at the Summer Program.

My bullying story began in preschool. I was on a soccer team where an egocentric, strong-minded, and strong-willed girl excluded me and influenced her clique to do the same. This continued for several years and carried over to my elementary school. There was verbal and physical abuse in the schoolyard because of the name calling, tripping, and pushing. This group, which was growing, would stand together and mock me and make fun of me. The bullying was instigated by the ring leader, but it certainly extended to the guilty by-standers who did nothing to stand up for me.
