Kirsten Mikkola and Haley Skarin were chosen to participate in the State Honors Choir and the All State Band at the Michigan Music Conference on January 26th in Grand Rapids, MI. Both girls had to audition and were chosen from thousands of students across the state to participate in these groups. The competitiveness of getting accepted into these ensembles is a true testament to these young ladies’ talents. Tawas has never had students make it into these ensembles, so this is a huge honor for them and for our school! We are so proud to have them represent our Fine Arts Department.
