Scott Richard Klein
Faculty Hall of Fame 2019
Mr. Scott Richard Klein's encouragement and challenging class structure is the reason for his nomination and selection for the 2019 Faculty Hall of Fame award. As the chair and a professor in the CU Department of Art, Music, and Theatre Art, Klein has influenced his students and the community around him with his love for theatre for over 30 years.
Along with Klein's busy teaching schedule, he also directs at least two student performances a year. These theatre productions lead to his students learning beyond the classroom, while providing showings for the community to attend. This win-win situation is a constant reminder of the involvement and influence Klein brings to Cameron and the Lawton community, and with his hard work, Klein will continue to be awarded for his achievements. Klein’s expertise has also been called on to adjudicate many high school theatre and community theatre contests, including the National American Association of Community Theatre Festival.
Klein’s honors include the Lawton Arts and Humanities Educator in the Arts, Oklahoma Community Theatres' Jean Adams Wray Award, the Southwest Theatre and Film Association Presidential Citation and Oklahoma Speech Theatre Communications Theatre Educator of the Year, among others.
