Thank you to all students who interviewed with Mr. Smith on Thursday. Every person did a wonderful job expressing their thoughts and our program is lucky to have all of you as members. Unfortunately, I cannot have every candidate as an officer but I do hope you will consider trying for a choir class representative in the fall if you were not chosen as an officer. Please understand no one did anything wrong and you all bring something to the table that is of value for our program. 2019-2020 Officers can be found under students tab. Continue being the leaders and exemplary students you always are.
