Each year only a select number of students from across the state are accepted into the Kentucky All-State Choirs. Typically a high school is fortunate to have just a few students represent their choir program in the event. This year, however, fourteen Pulaski County High School students have earned positions in the choirs.
To audition for the High School choirs (grades 10-12), each student sang before a qualified panel of judges, both a piece of music they had never seen before and an a capella Renaissance song as part of a quartet. Students who auditioned for the Junior High choir (grades 7-9) submitted recorded auditions for judging.
The Kentucky All-State Choirs are a part of the Kentucky Music Educators Association Conference, which will be held February 4-7 in Louisville. Kentucky students will gather to rehearse for two days, and then perform a grand culminating concert at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.
To help fund their participation in the event, the Pulaski County High School Choir department is selling Singing Valentines. They will be delivered on February 13, during the school day, anywhere up to 15 miles from Pulaski County High School. The $40 Valentine includes two songs, a rose, and a card delivered by a small group of All-State singers in formal attire. Contact choir director, Meredith Braun, at 679-1574 to schedule your delivery, or stop by the front office at PCHS.
Melissa Taborda is a sixteen-year-old young lady who has overcome more obstacles than most adults. At eleven, she was diagnosed with a rare cancer. Due to the cancer and resulting treatments, she suffers numerous on-going medical conditions, including the significant loss of vision in her left eye. However, this does not define Melissa! She is one of the most positive, kind, and polite students at Pulaski County High School. Teachers talk about Melissa being someone who always puts the needs of others above herself. In fact, when granted a wish through the Make a Wish Foundation, Melissa gave it away. She asked that the youth area of a church she had formerly attended in Chicago be renovated. This was accomplished in her honor. Melissa’s ability to be positive despite the hardships she continues to experience truly makes her a role model for all.

“We’re so proud of our football team and what they accomplished this year — it really is amazing,” pointed out coach Hines.
“They were able to get over many hurdles,” added Hines. “Our coaches did a great job this year as they always do and I’m very proud of all of them. I’m proud of our school and all the folks that supported us — from the cheerleaders, to the band, to the student body, to all those that came out to the game including our booster club and all the parent groups. It’s important for them for us to have had a big win like that.”
