The following students (all Freshmen and Sophomores) also received individual awards and are now eligible to compete at the National level in Chicago, Illinois. Again, each of the 82 schools in attendance submitted multiple students for each test and these West students placed in the to 10 to become Finalists.

A'Cappella Choir

A'Cappella Choir had the opportunity to participate in the American Choral Directors Association Conference Held in Salt Lake City this year at the Salt Palace. Most choirs came from out-of-state so we were lucky to be invited at all. We were invited to perform in a masterclass with the assistant director of the Vatican in Rome Fabio Avolio. The students will be sending pictures with them standing with Fabio for the possibility of participating on the West High Web site opening page.
