  • Kingsport Theatre Guild - Stand and Deliver | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Local Events
    Kingsport Theatre Guild - Stand and Deliver - Based on the screenplay by Ramon Menendez and Tom Musca.

    Adapted for the stage by Robert Bella.

    The compelling true story of a dedicated East Los Angeles teacher who surmounts overwhelming odds in his quest to turn inner-city students into whiz kids. When Jaime Escalante leaves a career in engineering to teach high school math, he is assigned to a barrio school with a reputation for gangs, drugs and dropouts, an ill-funded school that is also in imminent danger of losing its accreditation. Still, his quirky sense of humor, antics and offbeat teaching methods mesmerize and motivate his students. A class goal is set: to take the Advanced Placement Calculus Test, an exam so demanding that less than two percent of seniors attempt it. Pressure mounts! Escalante works his students and himself so obsessively that he suffers a heart attack a couple of days before the test; nonetheless, 18 students take the test. All 18 pass! However, the skeptical Educational Testing Service invalidates the scores because of the unusual similarity of wrong answers. Ambition and pride vanish in a single computerized keystroke. Reluctantly, the students agree to retest. The result provides the dramatic conclusion to this emotion-packed, inspirational, urban fairy tale.

  • Russian National Ballet- "Cinderella" | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Arts and Entertainment
    Russian National Ballet- "Cinderella" - The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980's. During this time many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union's ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world. The company, then titled the Soviet National Ballet, was founded by and incorporated graduates from the great Russian choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm. Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience, many of whom have been with the company since its inception. In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko was selected by Presidential decree to assume the first permanent artistic directorship of the company. Ms. Radchenko is the founder of the Russian National Ballet Theatre, and she has focused the Company on upholding the grand national tradition of the major Russian ballet works and developing new talents throughout Russia.

  • Eastman ENERGY STAR® Celebration and Earth Day Expo | 3:00pm - 5:00pm | Local Events
    Eastman ENERGY STAR® Celebration and Earth Day Expo - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN) with a 2015 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for the richness of its energy management program and continued leadership in superior energy management. Through its partnership with the ENERGY STAR program since 2008, Eastman has made impactful improvements in its energy performance, resulting in energy intensity reductions, cost savings and lowered emissions.

    After being the first chemical company to be named ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year twice in 2012 and 2013, Eastman received the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award, EPA’s highest ENERGY STAR honor, in 2014. The recognition by EPA with the Sustained Excellence Award again this year reaffirms Eastman’s commitment to its energy management program.

    “It is an honor to be recognized once again by the EPA with the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award,” said Mark Costa, Chairman and CEO of Eastman. “This achievement is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the men and women at Eastman who continue to chart new territory for our industry in sustainability. I could not be more proud of our worldwide energy team and deeply appreciate the tremendous effort required throughout the company to drive improvements and achieve this recognition.”

    The ENERGY STAR program provides a proven energy management strategy that has helped Eastman achieve important reductions in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Key accomplishments of Eastman’s nationally recognized energy management program include:

    Continuing to focus on energy intensity improvement; since 2008, Eastman has improved intensity by nearly 8-percent, equating to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of one billion pounds.

    Integrating additional manufacturing sites into the worldwide energy program.

    Receiving awards recognizing energy efficiency efforts including the ENERGY STAR Combined Heat and Power Award and for the 21st consecutive year, American Chemistry Council Energy Efficiency Awards.

    Continuing to reap the benefits of building improvements with two buildings finishing in the Top 10 in EPA’s National Building Competition.

    Additionally, Eastman spent the year promoting ENERGY STAR benefits and resources through its campaign, “Be a star. Help the planet.” The campaign, featuring children of Eastman employees dressed as super heroes, directs viewers to Eastman’s ENERGY STAR website, http://www.eastman.com/ENERGYSTAR," target="_blank">http://www.eastman.com/ENERGYSTAR, for additional tools and resources.

    “The involvement of Eastman’s senior management in our energy program has been a key to our success,” said Sharon Nolen, manager of Eastman’s worldwide energy program. “I appreciate the support we receive from management, including funding, resources and encouragement to continue our efforts. None of these improvements could have been made, however, without the contributions of many employees around the globe. Their dedication coupled with our participation in ENERGY STAR’s industrial program continues to enable us to make improvements.”

    EPA’s annual ENERGY STAR Awards honor organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. The award winners are selected from nearly 16,000 partners that participate in the ENERGY STAR program and will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., on April 20, 2015.

    Kingsport Theatre Guild - Stand and Deliver - Based on the screenplay by Ramon Menendez and Tom Musca.

    Adapted for the stage by Robert Bella.

    The compelling true story of a dedicated East Los Angeles teacher who surmounts overwhelming odds in his quest to turn inner-city students into whiz kids. When Jaime Escalante leaves a career in engineering to teach high school math, he is assigned to a barrio school with a reputation for gangs, drugs and dropouts, an ill-funded school that is also in imminent danger of losing its accreditation. Still, his quirky sense of humor, antics and offbeat teaching methods mesmerize and motivate his students. A class goal is set: to take the Advanced Placement Calculus Test, an exam so demanding that less than two percent of seniors attempt it. Pressure mounts! Escalante works his students and himself so obsessively that he suffers a heart attack a couple of days before the test; nonetheless, 18 students take the test. All 18 pass! However, the skeptical Educational Testing Service invalidates the scores because of the unusual similarity of wrong answers. Ambition and pride vanish in a single computerized keystroke.

  • Kingsport Theatre Guild - Stand and Deliver | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Local Events
    Kingsport Theatre Guild - Stand and Deliver - Based on the screenplay by Ramon Menendez and Tom Musca.

    Adapted for the stage by Robert Bella.

    The compelling true story of a dedicated East Los Angeles teacher who surmounts overwhelming odds in his quest to turn inner-city students into whiz kids. When Jaime Escalante leaves a career in engineering to teach high school math, he is assigned to a barrio school with a reputation for gangs, drugs and dropouts, an ill-funded school that is also in imminent danger of losing its accreditation. Still, his quirky sense of humor, antics and offbeat teaching methods mesmerize and motivate his students. A class goal is set: to take the Advanced Placement Calculus Test, an exam so demanding that less than two percent of seniors attempt it. Pressure mounts! Escalante works his students and himself so obsessively that he suffers a heart attack a couple of days before the test; nonetheless, 18 students take the test. All 18 pass! However, the skeptical Educational Testing Service invalidates the scores because of the unusual similarity of wrong answers. Ambition and pride vanish in a single computerized keystroke. Reluctantly, the students agree to retest. The result provides the dramatic conclusion to this emotion-packed, inspirational, urban fairy tale.
