On May 4, 2017, the National Beta Club of Marshall County High School will present its annual talent show to the students in the gymnasium.

With ticket prices at $2, students never hesitate to pile up in the gym and observe the talent embodied in so many of their peers. Students of all grades will be given the chance to showcase their special hidden talent to the entire population of the school, whether it be singing, dancing, stand-up comedy, or visual art.

The academically excellent, responsible students of Marshall County’s Beta Club will arrange the entire set-up of the talent show, including the speakers and microphones, instruments, concessions, and taking money for the tickets at the door.

The following prizes will be distributed to the most talented students of the school: $100 for first place, $50 for second place, and $25 for third place.

Adriana Pomatto, one of Marshall County’s most artistically gifted students, will be participating in the visual arts section of the talent show. Being her second time competing, she feels as though she is “much more prepared and capable of winning first place in the arts section,” Pomatto said.

The Talent Show is definitely not an opportunity to skip, as it can open up an entirely new set of doors in someone’s life, presenting them with chances to step up when no one else will. It very well could be a doorway to a much greater outlook on life, that life is not simply all about the repetitive nature of existing, but travelling through it boldly without worrying what their peers think of them.

As one of the last events of the year, the talent show closes each academic year with wonderful memories and looks forward to making new ones next school year.
