We proudly announce that Annie Russell received a place within the Rollins College Walk of Fame on Mills Lawn.  Alongside other esteemed and valued artists, Annie Russell has achieved a new immortality. 

The stone is located to the right of the main entrance to the Mills Building.  The position has been carefully chosen so that when standing on the Walk of Fame in line with her stone, the front of the Annie Russell Theatre is in direct view.Annie Russell’s Great Nephew and his family, The Cartys, were in attendance of the historical ceremony.

Rollins College President, Lewis Duncan, laid the stone while the family looked on.  Also present were members of the Fred Stone Theatre’s production of Stage Fright, an homage to the life and struggles of Annie Russell.
