CHS Fine Arts Expo

Tuesday, May 10: 6:30pm

Carrington High School

     

(Click on a picture to enlarge the show.)

 

On Tuesday, May 10th, our local high school students displayed their artistic talents in the annual CHS Fine Arts Expo.  There were art projects on display, as well as vocal and instrumental performances, and speeches from the Carrington High School speech team.  Refreshments were provided as attendees browsed during the event and as a silent auction was held of some of the students' work.  Many people from the community attended the expo and were entertained and impressed with the talents of Carrington's young artisans.  Many thanks go to the students for sharing their talents with us and to Dave Pollert, Pegs Johnson, Christy Richter and Michele Seil for their professional guidance.
