Logan Gray and Christal Walker showed TEAMWORK by helping Mr. Davis move gear to build the stage for Upper School Night of Music.

I want to thank Parker Cain, Tamer Metwalli, Grayson Herrera, Hayden Bullard, and Jack Reimer for the TEAMWORK they showed to setup for the Night of Music. Events in the Quad are not an easy task anyway. To provide a large event at night in the Quad is an undertaking. With their help, they allowed the time and effort to pull equipment from all parts of the school to go above and beyond what has been done before. It was also very nice to see them work using the skills they have learned over time. This allowed for us to build a performance environment that sounded and looked great. The event turned out to be very special for a lot of guests. They had a direct impact on making this event special.

Caroline Carr, Anna Ruth Morrison, Carter Otey, Carli Gordon, Grayson Herrera, Mitchell Skolaris, Meg Weinstock, Madison Holmes, Andrea Moore, Jackson Welsh, Osahon Tokunboh, Danielle Phillips, & Dalton Phillips showed PASSION by helping Cannon during Thursday night’s Open House.  Bringing the A-team!
