Stav attended Havern from 1990-1992. His favorite teachers were Mrs. Janet Kester, Mrs. Budz & Mary Smid. “They gave me confidence in my current abilities while enhancing new talents I didn’t even know I had. I was not in a place that frustrated me, but a place that challenged me.”

Professional Juggler and Comedian

Reid attended Havern from 1978-1982. He began juggling at the age of 15. What was then just a fun hobby resulted in miraculous gains in his gross and fine motor skills. One year later, Reid saw an ad in the paper for jugglers at Elitch Gardens. That summer job convinced Reid that he wanted to continue to perform. Following high school, Reid went off to study with Ringling Brothers, and Barnum and Bailey Circus Clown College, where he learned the fine art of slapstick and physical comedy. Reid began to mix his technical juggling skill with slapstick humor. Since then, he has performed across the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, China and Japan. Reid currently holds 3 Bronze and 2 Silver medals in international competition.
