Ginger Vinson is the Board President of Abilene Community Theatre, but she would list being mother to her children, Daniel and Ann Marie, as her most important job. Ginger is always either in the Box Office or behind the scenes at ACT. She recently directed Othello, A Piece of my Heart, CTE’s Annie, Jr., and The Andrews Brothers. She is happily married to her husband, Darrell, and proudly holds an M. Ed in Counseling from Hardin-Simmons University. Currently, Ginger is employed at Abilene High School as the Technical Theatre Director. She believes that theatre education is vital to teach empathy and compassion in today’s world. She is excited to be leading the CTE Spring 2019 class!
