On Friday, May 23, Payson High Choirs present a showcase of songs from animated movies, including songs from Frozen, Hercules, and the Little Mermaid. This concert is different from the others in that the students wear t-shirts and jeans. The songs are more fun, obviously, and include choreography. Small group numbers are a highlight of the evening.
As graduation draws closer, everyone has been wondering who will be speaking at the joyous occasion; the last speeches they will ever hear from their peers in high school. Ali Apgood, Kaila Birchett, Callie Cheney, and McKinley McMullin are feeling the immense pressure to make their families and teachers proud. Regardless, these girls are prepared to dazzle their senior class with the great memories of high school through creative spoken word.
Respect all, fear none, this is the motto the Payson track team lives by. They know the importance of having respect not only for their teammates but for the other team as well. We have all heard the saying that respect is earned, not given. You have to prove that you are worthy of someone’s respect, they are not going to just hand it out like candy on Halloween. These incredible athletes have worked hard to earn the respect of their coaches, their team and also the opposing teams.
