"Lastly, students benefit greatly from participation in performance arts. We do a fine job promoting academics and athletics, but let us encourage our students’ creative endeavors. It would benefit our small communities if students produced more plays, concerts and art shows throughout the academic year, as we are remotely located without many performance art venues.”
