Kiwanis Club of Perry showcases talented teens

February 13, 2013 

The Kiwanis Club of Perry held its annual talent showcase at Perry High School on Jan. 26.

Since being chartered in 1938, the Kiwanis Club of Perry has dedicated itself to supporting youth in the community.

Scholarships are given every year to students at both Westfield and Perry High schools, and the club also participates in a student recognition program, which honors a student each year from local schools.

The Talent Showcase has three divisions for competition: first through sixth grades, seventh through ninth grades and 10th through 12th grades. Cash prizes and trophies are given to all finalists in each division. The first-place winner in the 10-12 grade division goes on to the state Kiwanis talent competition to be held this year in Carrollton on April 27.

Money raised at the Kiwanis Talent Showcase will help fund scholarships that the club gives to deserving high school seniors each year.

Class C (first through sixth grade) winners:

First place was won by Rumi Lee, who played the violin, second place went to Ian Cornelius, who performed on the piano and third place went to Isabella Green, who sang.

Class B (seventh through ninth grade) winners:

First place went to Erin Vickers for her vocal performance while second place was awarded to Colin Zammit, who played the piano.

Class A (10th through 12th grade) winners:

First place went to Cole Stover, Austin Hanni and Cameron Dale, a vocal group. All three attend Houston County High School. It was their second year performing in the Talent Showcase.

Second place went to Taylor Peterson, who performed on the piano.

For third place there was a tie between Cassie Hulette, who sang, and Michael Stewart and Evelyn Jones, who performed together singing and dancing.
