L.A. Actress Visits Work Experience Class at Pioneer

Los Angeles Actress Nancy LaScala took time from her filming schedule of "The Eagle and the Albatross,” to share her professional acting and modeling career with the students in her sister Linda’s work experience class at Pioneer High School on Monday, September 25.  Ms. LaScala’s current movie is being filmed in Montrose, PA, which is home for the award-winning writer, Angela Shelton, who is also directing the film.  Nancy’s extensive modeling, commercial, stage and film career has taken her all over the world -- where she has met and acted with many influential actors and musicians in the field of entertainment.

Actress/Model Nancy LaScala (seated on desk at center) talks with students about some of her experiences in the entertainment field.

Ms. LaScala’s talk was directed to all the students and dealt with setting personal goals, being true to one’s self, but also dealing with rejection and how to rise above circumstances and failures and ultimately succeed.  Her astounding expertise in the entertainment field exposed the students to real world living and direction, and advised them in their personal career goals -- both in this industry or others.  She was very impressed with the talents of many of the students, who shared their varied gifts with her.  She also gave advice on pros and cons when seeking advice in the field of entertainment.  She shared just a small part of her experiences with the class; much to their delight.

Linda LaScala is a teacher’s assistant/job coach in Mrs. Schneider’s class at Pioneer High School.  You can read more about Nancy LaScala’s successes in the entertainment industry on her website and follow her at her website or hear about her experience talking with the work study class at
