Zac attends a retirement celebration for his drama teacher  




Excerpts from KSBY.com:
Longtime drama teacher Robyn Metchik took her final curtain call at the Clark Center for Performing Arts, where she directed and produced countless student performances over the last decade...

Nearly all of Metchik's guest directors and more than 50 former students performed in the show, which included musical numbers from past "Metchik Shows" and a special performance by the honoree's three children: Aaron, Asher and Ari.

But the biggest surprise came at the end of the night when former pupil and Hollywood actor Zac Efron emerged from backstage with a homemade award for Metchik.

"She pretty much embodies drama for me all through my high school years," said Efron. "When I found out she was retiring, I raced in my car today to be here. Literally stuck in traffic not even knowing if I was going to make it."

Efron credited Metchik with inspiring creativity and confidence among he and his peers growing up, and called her "the reason I was able to do anything in my life".

He also visited her classes after he succeeded professionally, to encourage her students. They must have had a spasm, at least the girls.

This is so sweet and adorable. And the homemade award just made it better.

I'm sure that all teachers feel a sense of pride when any of their pupils succeed. For Zac to race to be there for her is so very special. What a sweet thing to do. Gotta love how grounded and down to earth Zac remains.

It's touching how he demonstrates a sense of gratitude and humility towards those who helped shape him into the man and the actor he is today. Many successful people forget their humble beginnings, and fail to honor those who instructed them.

I, too, love Zac more for his thoughfulness.

I believe his condition is incurable.

His English teacher should be proud too! There are no spelling errors. LOL
