High School Students Show Off Their Many Talents

On May 10th, Kingsway Regional High School’s Culture Club put on their annual talent show.  Advised by Spanish teacher Patricia Villarreal, the show featured singers,dancers, a banjo player, and students playing the piano.

The show was hosted by senior class president, Cam Martin. He told many jokes and even said a few kind words about some of the performers. Also, there were many Kingsway students working behind the scenes during the show. These students opened the curtains, set the spotlight, put on the heavy instruments, and much more.

One of the many highlights of the evening was the intermission act, “The Intermissioners”. The band featured Kingsway students, and the guest singer was actually AP Italian teacher Lisa Camp. The band’s most recognizable song was “Carwash.” After the second half with more great, talented students, it was time for the judges to make their final decision.

Winning the first section was senior, Kyla Ciechon. Kyla sang “She Used To Be Mine” from the popular Broadway musical Waitress.“This is my second year doing the talent show, and the talent in this school keeps on growing! I’m happy to have won best singer  my last year of high school” said Kyla. This is Kyla’s second win this year, also winning for “Kingsways Got Talent”.

The next category’s winner was junior, Rylee Oswald. Rylee, while playing a ukulele, performed an original song,  This performance was one of the best acts of the show.  Following Rylee’s win was Dan Jasinski. He played the song “Dueling Banjos.” on his banjo.  It was something to see.

Finally, the overall winner was junior, Rylee Oswald. She won best overall act for her original song. “The school talent show is such an awesome experience. Everyone did such an amazing job. It was awesome getting to know some new, extremely talented people!” said Oswald.
