Each October, high school and college theatre students come together for the annual Georgia Theatre Conference (GTC) to participate in workshops and various competitions, while connecting with actors, directors, and technological workers from every corner of the state.

She was awarded the overall design award and first place for her realized lighting design from Fuddy Meers, a play that ran in the GSU Black Box Theatre last spring.  Haynes also received a second place award for her paper design for No Exit, which she created for class.
