Best Buddies walk for inclusion, Gold Standard awards and the Variety Show

April 20 to 26.

After performing with Onstage! And Mixed Chamber Choir, Jerod Turner (12) waves to the audience after singing a duet to “P.Y.T.” by Michael Jackson with Antonio Sanders (11) during the Variety Show, April 21. “The energy that you feel on stage is what I love about performing,” Turner said. “The audience grants you energy, and it is fulfilling. I liked the Onstage! one the best because I had a solo. I know this sounds conceited, but it was nice having the song focused around me. During class, I had to practice every day, and having that work recognized was nice.”
