High School
Bear Creek High School


Nominated by
Karen Minick
Grace Gremel's Coach

Scholastically, Grace is literally at the top of her class, ranking within the top fifty as of this writing. She has always challenged herself with classes that demand more academic rigor and has risen to the occasion. Not only is she conscientious and smart academically, but she shows a level of maturity in her questioning and thought process that is beyond her years. This might be due to being the only child in adult settings so often, but regardless of the reasons, it serves her well.

Personally, Grace is amiable, social, and fully of energy! As this year’s Associated Student Body President, she has willingly taken on a variety of responsibilities that rise above the average high school student. Not only is she organized and dependable, she also speaks regularly to the Lodi Unified School Board as the student representative and is always poised and well spoken. All these things might be the result of her performance experience and back-ground, which is also impressive for her age!

Socially, Grace is your proverbial butterfly. She welcomes everyone and everything with open arms and it has been a challenge for her to prioritize her time midst the variety of activities she is involved in. Having performed publicly in the community since grade school, Grace is well versed on the stage and has had several staring roles, including Annie herself in the musical. Being surrounded by adults has provided her with an opportunity to interact and become more mature than many her age but she has used this quality in all her endeavors. Not only is she a multiple qualifier and award-winning competitor in my program but also a leader holding the title of co-captain the past two years. She immediately earned the respect and trust of her peers in my program, and obviously others on campus.

I knew that Grace Gremel was going to be a talented, intelligent and vibrant young woman when I started teaching her music in the first grade. Throughout the years I have been completely mesmerized by her as I watch her performances on stage. She has captivated audiences with her triple talents as an accomplished singer, dancer, and actress in captivating roles such as Claire in the Nutcracker, Annie for Stockton Civic Theater and the Grinch in our school play. She has performed numerous times on stage and still manages to take an active role in many clubs and leadership in high school. I am proud to call this young lady a former student, I know her future will be bright!

Grace is an exceptional young woman. My daughter and I know her through the Stockton Civic Theatre Jr. program, and she has always been incredibly kind and helpful to everyone, especially the younger kids like my daughter. She’s a talented singer and actress, and a poised and genuine person. I can’t wait to see what big things Grace does in the future!

Where to begin...I first met grace through theatre several years ago. She was excited to be a part of this community of performers and it didn't take her long to win the hearts of those around her. She's intelligent, talented, extraordinary! She will, without a doubt, excel at whatever she chooses to do. Love you, Gracie.

Our family has known Grace since she was a baby. Her family and ours lived on the same street. As Gracie grew older, she would come to our garage and walk into our house asking, "Can Gabriella play?" I'll always remember that about her. Gracie was a really sweet little girl who has grown into a graceful and talented young lady. Even though her family moved from our street, I still love keeping up with her and her family. I look forward to seeing what Gracie tackles next. I know receiving this scholarship will help her achieve her dreams.

I have been fortunate to witness Grace grow it the kind and brilliant young woman she is today! I have worked with Grace many years in theater and have seen her continually exceed our expectations. She is beyond talented but always wants to learn more and develop her craft. In her more recent years, she has become a mentor for her peers and helps them foster their skills. When she student director one of our radio plays, she demonstrated her organizational skills, calm demeanor and still made the experience fun. Grace is so kind hearted, down to earth and wise beyond her age. She is a gift to the theater, her peers and her community.

Grace is an incredibly driven, talented and hard-working young woman. We have worked with Grace for over two years honing her craft as an actor. She has gone above and beyond, showing technique and talent in league with working professionals beyond her years. While working with us and consistently performing in regional theatre, she continued to excel in her academic pursuits and other extracurricular activities. I believe with the proper training, she will become an extremely powerful contributor to any industry she chooses to pursue.

Grace and her family were our neighbors. I always enjoyed spending time with her family whenever we had our neighborhood gatherings. I had the pleasure of seeing her grow into an outstanding young woman. I was in awe when I saw her perform in The Stockton Civic Theater’s production of “Annie” a few years ago. She’s so talented and charismatic! She definitely commands the stage. Grace is very eloquent and has has shown that she has fantastic leadership skills. She’s part of Bear Creek High’s Associated Student Body and she has addressed the School Board in a very mature and poised manner. I am so proud of Grace and I think she is very deserving of this scholarship.

I believe she will continue to be successful in all she does and will be an asset anywhere she goes.

My first introduction to Grace Gremel was with Ballet San Joaquin. She was a lovely, petite dancer on stage. Grace then transitioned into theater, taking her dance training with her. I have watched her grow and develop into a skilled stage actor.
Grace is kind, very interested in learning and improving her skills, whether it be acting or singing, and most of all a wonderful young woman. I know she is also a top-notch student. Grace Gremel is a very worthy and deserving candidate for this scholarship.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Grace for several years now. She has been in several shows at the same theatre my son is involved with. She is such an amazing and talented young woman. She is so friendly and supportive of other cast members. It has been a joy watching her grow and blossom into the performer she is today.

I have been in multiple shows with my daugther ever since she was young and am even currently in a show with her now, and her ability to capture a character and bring it to life has always mesmerized me. Watching her dedicate so many hours to community theater, to all the different shows, to all the different rehearsals, emphasizes how much she cares about connecting with the different audiences and contributing to something they can enjoy.
