March 31, 2017 -- Belated congratulations to Kelsey O'Brien McManus, a 2005 Marcellus graduate who now works in the maintenance department at K.C. Heffernan Elementary School, for winning the prize for best comedy in the first-ever Marcellus Movie Madness Family Film Festival late last fall.
The film, “Paw Patrol,” stars her dog, Toby, who is shown going on police patrol to catch bad guys and fight crime.
McManus said she first developed an interest in film in high school, “when they used to hold the coffee house for people who wanted to show off their talents. So my sister and friend and I would make short movies and show them at the coffee house. Everyone loved them, and I just got more into it from there.”
