SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Salt Lake Comic Con (http://saltlakecomiccon.com/) and ABC 4 want to celebrate the heroes in Utah's schools and have created a League of Heroes to recognize these heroes for a chance to win Salt Lake Comic Con tickets for their entire school.

"Salt Lake Comic Con fans are known around the world for celebrating heroes. In April Governor Gary Herbert declared April 17, 2014 as Heroes Day. We want to continue this tradition and celebrate those students that make Utah and our communities a better place to live and play," said Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer.  "League of Heroes recognizes those students that are a shining beacon of light and hope in this world. And to celebrate those hero students we are giving them tickets to attend Salt Lake Comic Con."

All Utah based elementary schools, middle schools and high schools are eligible to win. Salt Lake Comic Con and ABC 4 will select five winning schools from across the state.

Nominees should tell us about the heroes in their school and why they should be recognized by Salt Lake Comic Con.

"Salt Lake Comic Con really appeals to students and they are some of our biggest fans. Kids that read comics learn valuable reading, science and technology skills that help them succeed in the world.

Comic book heroes serve as valuable role models that make a difference in life," said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt Lake Comic Con Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. "Rewarding students for their heroic efforts is a natural fit for Salt Lake Comic Con and these types of actions are things we want to encourage."

Hal Holbrook performing Mark Twain Tonight Sept. 4 at his prep school alma mater Aug 30, 2014 02:02PM

CULVER, Ind., Aug. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Emmy- and Tony Award-winning actor Hal Holbrook, a 1942 graduate of Culver Military Academy, will return to his alma mater Sept. 4 for a performance of his highly-acclaimed one-man show Mark Twain Tonight.

The opening production of Culver Academies' 2014-15 Huffington Concert Series, the performance will be at 7:30 p.m. in Eppley Auditorium on the campus. A limited number of tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis by calling (574) 842-7058.

"There are places on this campus where I have lived and died ... and out of that I got me," Holbrook has said of the prep boarding school he attended from 1938-42.

In the Fall 2011 issue of Culver Alumni Magazine, Holbrook recalled that at the start of his senior year he needed an easy course with one hour of credit to graduate. A friend told him "there was no homework in dramatics class. That did it. That got me onstage. When I actually went out onstage I realized that people were listening to me for the first time in my life. Really listening. That's when the acting bug bit me."

Holbrook is completing the 60th consecutive year of his legendary solo show, having performed it more than 2,250 times. Holbrook has won several awards for Twain, including the Tony and a special Drama Critics' Circle Award. His 90-minute CBS television special was nominated for an Emmy Award and seen by an audience of 22 million. 

Holbrook was Culver's first Man of the Year in 1967-68 and was inducted into the Academies' Arts & Letters Hall of Fame in November 2004. He also returned to campus in 2002, speaking to an all-school assembly. In 2010, he released the first volume of his autobiography Harold: The Boy Who Became Mark Twain.

He last performed Mark Twain Tonight at Culver in 1962, marking his first appearance in Eppley Auditorium, which was completed in 1959.
