On Saturday night, Campion Academy students experienced a talent show performance put on by the Student Association (SA). There were various kinds of performances including poetry, playing instruments, acting, and singing.
A group of junior boys also known as the “Gents” sang, “I Can't Help Falling in Love.” Geraldy Marvel expressed his experience as a member, “Being a part of the “Gents” was a marvelous experience. Getting on stage, performing, and seeing the faces of many happy people was fun.” The audience showed their appreciation for the performance by erupting in cheers.
Having recently arrived from Japan to learn English at Campion, Rio Nomura, a freshman, along with her sister Airi Nomura, sang “The Start of Something New.” Rio excitedly stated, “I really loved that everyone was vibing when my sister and I were singing. It made me so happy and excited.” As a lover of performing arts, she expressed, “ I’m thankful for the opportunity to sing.” This was her first time performing in front of people in a new country.
The crowd was full of energy, constantly cheering for their fellow students and grooving along to the musical performances. Audra Bennet, a junior said, “I really loved that everyone was engaged and hyped up that night, it made the experience that much better. The acts themselves were very entertaining.”
In former years the student talent show was a part of Senior Recognition weekend, but this year it was replaced with drama’s dinner theater, so the SA decided to include it as one of the final events of the semester. Gwyn Reeves, the SA treasurer concluded her experience by saying, “I really enjoyed being able to carry on an old tradition at Campion. I had a lot of fun working with my SA officers to make it all happen and hope it will become a tradition again for years to come.”
