Knox students participate in KMEA All-State

Two male choir students hold their award plaques

Four Knox Central students and one Lynn Camp student participated in the annual Kentucky Music Educators Association’s All-State choir held in Louisville.

Lori Mullins, student of choir director Jackie Melton at Lynn Camp, was chosen for the choir as were Knox Central’s Emily Cooper and Rayle Golden (ninth graders who sang in the KJHC (Ky Junior High Chorus) SSA Women’s Chorus), and Matthew Merida and Travis Hensley (senior and junior who sang in the All-State TTBB Chorus for 10th-12th graders).

“I’m so proud of our students,” said choir director Stephanie Schumann at Knox Central.  “All did an outstanding job singing and representing Knox County Public Schools at All-State. ”

The students were equally excited to share about their experience at All-State.

“One of the best experiences of my life!”
“A dream come true, to perform with such awesome people!”
“The greatest opportunity of my high school career!”
“All-State was one of the best experiences of my life.  It meant a lot to me because it really shows me my capabilities.  I’m capable of coming together in a room full of tons of girls I had never even met and treat them like family.  I can come together with those girls and make beautiful sounds with our voices.  It truly is an amazing experience and I wish everyone could be lucky enough to go.”
