Joan Degerness has passed along her passion for Trollwood Performing Arts School to her family. Jordan, 15; Walker, 13; and Parker, 7; are all involved in Trollwood programs this summer, and Joan, herself, has been directly involved with Trollwood for over 30 years. Her kids think it's cool that their mom played Dorothy in the 1983 Mainstage musical production of "The Wizard of Oz" at Trollwood.
