The Talent Show at SHS was last night, and I was fortunate enough to be able to work backstage. It was really fun getting to know the kids this week. There are so many kids with talent, and it was great to have an opportunity for them to show off what they can do. Some of David and Austin’s friends were in the show or working as crew backstage, and it was fun to hang out with them. David and Austin did get to come to the show, and although they had to leave early, they were able to enjoy the majority of the show.
We were particularly glad to see our friends, Lex & Colton, do so well. They regularly entertain us on Friday nights, so it was nice to see them get a larger audience.
Working at the school this week, also made my commitment to a new high school even stronger. Everything about their stage and equipment was second rate, although they do the best with what they have. I talked to a parent from another high school who couldn’t believe how tight the seating was and another who wondered why we were using garage lights on the stage (we don’t have any thing else!). If you are a local, please make it known to your representative on the Board of Supervisors that this high school needs to be rebuilt. They have a meeting on March 15th at 3:00 p.m., and anyone who can should go and speak. They have ignored these kids for too long!
