Speaker: Max Herz '13
Max Herz '13: Hey Mama Holmes, it's Max Herz, Class of 2013. Want to congratulate you on everything you've done at WT. And I hope you know how loved you are from so many. I was honored to be a part of WT's Rebel years against the Kellys where we went funny on them with "The brain from Planet X" and "Avenue Q." Two shows that were really special and so hilarious and it was just too amazing Springs to be a part of and I'm so happy I got to be a part of so many different shows with you and find my funny side and make it public. All the one acts were always so special Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon, Check Please, The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza. All ridiculous and you know me, Lita, and the whole crew are still quoting them to this day. So I wanted to say thank you as I have many times for how much fun you helped make so many of the things I did in high school with you, Jill, your husband, the whole crew. It was amazing and I hope you feel the love 100 times over during this last year at WT. I love you and see you soon
What are some of the lessons you carry with you today?
Max Herz '13: I'm really fortunate to work in sports broadcasting, which is my absolute dream job. And I would have said the same thing when I was in high school, but I never would have thought about how well doing theater and learning to speak and project and have timing and be funny. And if I had learned how to dance, learn how to dance, which I tried to do, but couldn't do it, how much all those things would help me in what ended up being a dream job for me. So those things played a huge role in my life and as I was figuring everything out in high school, I certainly got better at those things, whether I was thinking about it or not, from all the time I spent on stage and doing improv and messing around.
