The scholarship application is available in student services - deadline for return is Friday, April 28. Please note: Applicants need not be majoring in music in order to qualify for this scholarship.
IT’S FREE! Now that I have your attention please come out and join the drama club members this weekend today and Saturday as 4 HHS students produce their own work. Justin Hernandez, Owen Tait, Ethan Dulaca, and Cassie Thompson have written and directed their own shows. The casts are littered with talented HHS students and each show runs 20-25 minutes. On Friday you will get to see all four productions and then on Saturday we will have a second showing of Owen and Cassie’s shows. Come out and see the work your talented peers have put together. Did I mention it is free?
