Does Walker High School have talent? This was the question before the annual Walker High School Talent show, which took place on Friday, November 20th. Our talent show featured eleven delightful varieties of acts ranging from modern takes on classical music and always entertaining dance routines. Our acts were judged by three of our very own Walker High teachers these include: Mrs. Ingram, Coach Young, and Mrs. Williams. The night began with the musical stylings of Brandon Douglas on piano and C.J. Harris singing. You were not only entertained by the acts, the National Honor Society which hosts the event had four talented emcees to keep the crowd entertained with their wardrobe changes and witty introductions. Clint Montgomery and Katie Youngblood both played the classical piano pieces. Ryan May had a rocking drum solo very early on in the evening and was considered and honorable mention. Two acts featured dancing including Jerry Wilder, and Neya Farris and Elisha Jones. Katherine Clouse sang as Jim Trotter played piano. Ashten Duncan showed her faith by singing a moving song which placed her in the top three. Mary Hope Courington showcased her abilities by playing a soothing melody on the violin. Also, featured were two bands Shadow of the Trinity which featured a combination on songs, and the finale that brought the crowd to their feet was Water Tower Escapades playing a Blink 182 song. This years talent show winner was Shadow of the Trinity staring Logan Barker playing the drums, Eric Cagle playing bass guitar and back-up vocals, Andrew McGehee playing the electric guitar, and Dylan Adams acoustic guitar and lead vocals. Jim Trotter and Katharine Clouse’s performance placed them second and third place was taken by Ashten Duncan amazing singing.
The talent show was sponsored by The National Honor Society and raised over six hundred dollars to go towards our school. This was a great way to end a busy week and begin the Thanksgiving holiday. There were several great acts and everyone deserves to be commended for their talents. We would like to thank everyone who helped make the talent show possible this includes the emcees, National Honor Society, and tech support, which the show would not be capable without. The show was very successful, and everyone looks forward to see next years be bigger and better!
