Zora Lungren graduated this spring from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, cum laude, with a major in drama and a minor in child and adolescent mental health studies from the College of Arts and Sciences. She completed both her primary and advanced acting training at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, where she studied with some of the best drama teachers in the world.

She said she wishes to thank those Whidbey organizations and individuals who provided their support, both financial and emotional, to help her succeed at NYU.

NYU Commencement exercises were held in Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, May 22.

The Salute to Tisch School Graduates was held at Radio City Music Hall on Friday May 24.

Zora is pursuing her professional acting career in New York City.

Proudly viewing the graduation ceremony were her godparents, David and Lenna Rose, South Whidbey Record “Hometown Heroes” in February 2011. Zora herself was a Hometown Hero in May 2009, the year she graduated from South Whidbey High School.

Also on hand for her graduation from NYU were her parents, Mary Jane Lungren, a dentist in Langley, and Kevin Lungren, a financial advisor and stock broker with an office in Clinton. They live in Freeland.
