The life of actor, director and educator John Slade was celebrated Aug. 3 at the Nordhoff High School Auditorium. A standing-room only audience of more than 150 gathered to hear words and music by Slade's family, friends and former students. At the event, the John Slade Memorial Scholarship, a fund established for a graduating senior pursuing a theater major, was announced. Slade was killed in a hit-and-run crash July 6 on the U.S. 101 in Ventura. The man who allegedly caused the crash and then fled on foot, Patrick John McVicker of Ventura, is still at large and is still being sought by the California Highway Patrol, said officer Kevin Denharder.
