Mallory Pellegrino is the Director of Education at the Warehouse Theatre in Greenville, SC. She passionately believes in experiential learning and arts integration: whether it is using the actor's approach to Shakespeare to unlock the Bard's language, tackling a difficult topic through the lens of theatre, or just some good old-fashioned creative play. Mallory and her #hulkhusband have recently converted their formal dining room into a personal library-- the shelves are already full. Mallory is also extremely fond of her two knuckle-headed dogs, a strong cup of coffee, and a good mixed tape.
Marty Duckenfield recently left the National Dropout Prevention Center to work exclusively on educational broadcasts as both host and producer with Clemson Broadcast Productions. Marty also founded the Clemson Duckenfield Scholars Program, which sends two honors students to Oxford University for a summer abroad. She mostly enjoys bringing together interesting people and helping them share their stories and experiences to benefit others. Really, she just loves doing anything that's creative!
