West High Semi-Annual Talent Show

Acts can range anywhere from doing flips to singing, and the proceeds from the admission tickets go toward the Carissa Lamb Scholarship Fund, which will give $500 to help a deserving senior who plans to attend a vocational school or college. (Applications will be ready around Spring Break for those who would like to apply). The funds also go towards various events and things for the school, such as the Turkey Drive and the new Runner’s Flag for the cheerleaders at football games.

First, second, and third place went to Dejsha Walker, a singer, The Sheridans, a band that played original music with three members: Aiyanna Rivera, Mario Rivera and Cole Keller, and Dark Kirkendall, who rapped his own song.

The show has run once a semester for about five years, with 12 people on average trying out each semester. This semester, 25 tried out. Those who make it to the show itself consisted of six acts: the afore-mentioned winners, plus Shea Rivers and AJ McCullough, dancers, Aliyah Kristek, a singer,  and Je’Won Neighbor and Dominic Serna, who did flips.
