Cougars Take Talent to Top

Weston Ranch High School held its annual “Cougars Got Talent” talent show on September 21, and it was a huge hit. Fourteen acts came to the stage in the Performing Arts Center and dazzled the packed house with various acts showcasing the many talents of the Weston Ranch students.

“It was so great to host an event where performing arts students can have some agency over their performance,” said band director Robert Brown. “They got to pick who they performed with and auditioned with. It was their night to shine.”

The event had a much bigger audience this year and was fun for everybody. The audience saw a rock band open the show, followed by singers, dancers, and other musical acts. The show concluded with a jazz band combo, who wowed the crowd with their musical genius.

Previous leaders of the talent show came and watched the performance and were impressed by how well it went and how many people signed up to participate.

“It was beautiful seeing the kids outside class doing what they love,” said Mr. Leland. “It’s a side of the students we don’t get to witness during the day, making this show very special for me as a teacher.”

Four student judges chose the following students as the top performers:

1st place-Jazz Band Rhythm Section: Victor Camacho, Michael Cornish, and David Nnamdi
2nd place-Justin Spain
3rd place-Jasmin Divino
Teacher’s Choice- Xitlaly Hernandez

Congratulations to all performers, and good job on going out there and showing everyone what you got. Some of the acts were very complex, and it took a lot of preparation to make the night as right as it was. However, the number of acts, the performers’ creativity and practice, and the huge crowd made this a memorable night.
