Live from Chicago, it’s Chevy Chase! Actor surprises Flashpoint Academy students with visit

Flashpoint Academy students will be talking about the surprise visit tutorial from famous comedian/actor Chevy Chase who spent an hour with them after a tour of the facilities.

Chase talked about the importance of creative collaboration, honing in on writing and took Q&A from the students, reported Flashpoint spokesperson Rachel Landry.

So how did Connecticut resident Chase and his wife, Jayni, find their way to brand new, three-month old Flashpoint visual arts school in the heart of Chicago’s Loop?

Like many a hook-up, the connection was made through a friend-of-a-friend. Jayni Chase’s best friend knew a Flashpoint student and had taken a facilities tour last summer.

She told Jayni how impressed she was and suggested that when the Chases came to Chicago to visit their daughter, who lives here, that they should check out the school.
