Singers, poets, actors and musicians took the stage before a standing-room-only crowd for the high school’s annual Spotlight Night, sponsored by the high school’s literary magazine, Perspective.

The coffeehouse-style event provided an opportunity for high school students to show off their creativity and talent and overcome their stage fright in an intimate setting. With the lights dimmed in the mini-theater, filled with parents, friends and faculty, students gave heartfelt performances, one senior even moving the audience to tears. Katie LaMere sang about leaving the nest and dedicated the song to her mother. Megan Prosser shared a poem about a personal struggle, and Jamison Murcott acted out a monologue that she wrote about abuse. Spotlight Night included 19 acts in total, the majority being singers and musicians performing popular songs.

In addition to the student performances, the Interact Club sold snacks and drinks to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Spotlight Night was once again a complete success, with attendees raving about the show on their way out.
