A Lakeland school district alum is inspiring students to reach their full potential through the performing arts.

Anthony Lee Medina, who graduated Walter Panas High School in the Class of 2007, plays a main character in Netflix series "The I-Land" and Alexander Hamilton's son in the Broadway show "Hamilton." And he attributes his success to taking center stage at Walter Panas.

The award-winning performing arts program puts some of the most talented and fearless actors on their path to fame.

Currently, rehearsals for the upcoming production of "Shrek The Musical" are underway at the school.
