Just this past week, I was treated to a number of events that profoundly reflected the character and talents of the students we have at Williston.
The Fall Choral Concert, capped by a fabulous rendition of “Jai Ho” (from Slumdog Millionaire), revealed our singers thoroughly enjoying themselves as they entertained an audience of faculty, parents, and students.
The dance concert “Rhythmic Shock” featured our students’ creativity and talent as they choreographed and performed a variety of pieces set to classical and contemporary music.
Finally, the Athletic Department hosted a gathering to honor senior Kay Samples-Smart, who signed a Division I National Letter of Intent to play women’s basketball next year at Bethune-Cookman University.
What these various events had in common, and what was so memorable, was the support the students gave one another. The packed house at the dance concert sounded like a March Madness basketball tournament, and the standing room only crowd for our featured senior athlete showed that our students vote with their feet by showing up at their friend’s meaningful events. Remarkable.
