Kiwanis Club Talent Show


By Melissa Robinson
Contributing Editor 

  It was a heartfelt rendition of What a Wonderful World that landed homeschooled high school senior, Miriam Williams, the first place trophy and a $1,250 scholarship for college in the 15th annual Henry County Talent Showcase sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Henry County. Williams will also be eligible to compete in the Georgia District of Kiwanis Musical Showcase to be held on April 27 at the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center in Carrollton, Georgia, where she will have the opportunity to compete for additional scholarship money.

  Thirteen talented teen acts vied for the top spot in the talent show held at the Henry County Performing Arts Center in McDonough. Ola High School senior Jacob Pogioli’s musical rendition of I am Adolpho, from the play The Drowsy Chaperone, took second place and Mary Lott, a tenth grade student at Luella High School, earned third place with her lyrical dance to the Rihanna song Stay.
