Latham Centers First Campus Talent Show: Audience Brought to their Feet!
Two students sing their hearts out! Judges look on impressed.
On March 23rd, Megan Fedor, Director of Performing Arts in the Children’s Program, hosted Latham Centers’ first ever Talent Show! All students and staff on campus met in the Dining Room where judges were waiting in anticipation. Twenty-one students sang songs and performed skits ranging from classics like, “Fly like an Eagle,” and “That’s Amore,” to favorites like Frozen’s, “Let it Go.” A few students who didn’t feel comfortable singing played musical instruments, or performed skits they personally wrote and directed.
Judges ranged from CEO and President, Anne McManus to VP of Quality Assurance, Craig Anderson. The children’s staff was also represented with long-time Residential Manager, Patti Hynes-Morris, to the Director of the Children’s Program, Gerry Pouliot.
From the judges’ perspective, it was incredible to see students singing aloud to a group of peers, having had to memorize lyrics and keep the audience’s attention. Many students performed who would have cowered at the thought no more than 6 months ago. It’s at events like these where staff can truly see growth in our students for which we constantly strive.
Of the 21 performances, four winners were selected to move on the next step of the competition – a talent show with CapeCodCAN! We’ll keep you updated on how that goes!
