This week during our Mountain Classic Tournament, there's also winners off the court. One of those winners is Cara Hall, a Ralph Gabbard Scholarship winner.

You may recognize Cara Hall from her life on the stage, whether it's a Pikeville High School performance or a Jenny Wiley show.

"Always doing the plays. We all have so much in common, the people that work in the music program, the people that work in the drama program, backstage we have a lot of fun. It's a lot of learning experiences," Cara said.

Cara knows she wants to continue performing after high school graduation this year. She plans to attend college somewhere in Kentucky before starting her career. Her teachers believe she'll do well.

"Cara has been an outstanding student. She's very, very talented, has a lot of potential. I've enjoyed working with her," said Cara's teacher Dan Houston.

When Cara isn't on stage, she's hitting the books. She takes honor classes and participates in the scholars program at school. Theater is her love and she hopes her future career.

"I've always thought you shouldn't ever wake up and think, I have to go to work today. You should wake up and say, I get to go to work today. I think theater is something I want to do and want to work with everyday," Cara said.

She already knows where she wants to work.

"Since I was little, I've always wanted to be a Disney princess and now it doesn't matter what I do for Disney, I just love their environment," Cara said.

She hopes to go there after college, but no matter where she is, she plans to be on stage.

Cara has one more high school performance left, Little Shop of Horrors at Pikeville High this spring.
