Whittier College actors win award WHITTIER – Whittier College senior Napoleon Tavale recently won fourth place in a regional acting competition sponsored by the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. Tavale and his partner, Whittier College junior Cody Goulder, competed against more than 250 students from throughout the west during the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Auditions at Southern Utah University. The competition was held Feb. 12 to Feb. 17. The duo’s high placement qualifies them to be a second alternate, replacing higher finishers should they not compete in the national competition in Washington D.C. this spring. Since 1969, the Kennedy Center festival has showcased student talent and given advice to aspiring thespians, playwrights and others interested in improving the quality of theater in the nation’s colleges and universities.
