Stephen Colbert gave a surprise appearance at Marrington Middle School of the Arts on Monday, October 14th. At the invitation of his brother John who teaches 8th grade SC History at the school. The host of the Colbert Report entertained the children with stories of his childhood, answered questions and spoke on the value of arts in education.
The eighth grade was introduced to him by Principal James Spencer in a way that caused the children to expect their history teacher. Their squeals of delight rewarded the celebrity as he entered. The school was gracious and made the experience memorable for all who attended the gathering in the cafeteria.
Stephen then visited the fine arts classes before he had to leave to catch his flight back to New York. Thank you Stephen for an exciting and inspirational morning.
