Patty poses with her family for a picture. Her family established a scholarship in her memory. “This scholarship was set up to help majorettes pay for college and remember all the good she tried to do for them. We are thinking of giving each senior some money to help more people instead of one big winner.  With all the donations, my family and I are very thankful and it is a nice way to remember her by helping the kids she loved to help,” junior Collin Ebling said.

LEAP — During the final dress rehearsal before the performances, sophomore Rachael Lenker does a Firebird as part of her role as the sugar plum fairy in The Nutcracker. “The role of the sugar plum fairy was a great honor. I was very excited and grateful for the opportunity,” Lenker said. “The hardest part about preparing for the show wasn’t only remembering the choreography, but performing with proper technique and entertaining stage presence. I love every part of the show, but if I had to pick a favorite part, it would be the ending scene when everyone comes out to bow. That moment is so magical and is what I look forward to every show.”
