Congratulations to Valedictorian Savanah Jackle!

We are so proud that one of our very own is again the Lassiter Valedictorian.  Following in the footsteps of Nathan Hipsman, 2008 Valedictorian and current doctoral candidate at Harvard University, Savanah Jackle, Chorus President of 2013-2014, worked diligently, took a rigorous course of study, shared her musical gifts with her classmates, and simply led by example.

Saying Savanah accomplished a lot during her Senior year would be an understatement. Not only did she serve as the Lassiter Chorus President but also arranged and conducted one the selections for Lassiter Ladies that was performed on the Spring Concert, all while serving as writer and host for the show.

Savanah also won a $500 LCBA Chorus Scholarship.  In her essay, Savanah described the impact Lassiter Chorus had on her: 

I have become more outgoing and confident because Dr. Williams and all the students in that room make me feel like I can do anything I set my mind to.  With Chorus it is not just a class; it is truly a family. Chorus has given me a reason to be excited to come to school each and every day of my high school career.  Chorus has taught me how to embrace the future.  I know there will be obstacles I have to fight my way through but in the end it will all be worth it.  Choral music became important to me when I realized how truly amazing it is.  Some of the hardest pieces have been my favorites because I truly appreciate the texts, rhythms and notes…and finally, regarding the President Office….I have helped make important decisions to make this year the best yet.  I have proudly been a role model for all underclassmen in my academics, social life, and chorus life!

 

Thank you, Savanah, for all you have done. Lassiter Chorus applauds you and your work!Image
