It’s Time to Show Your Talents
Liberty students are getting ready for the Talent Show
Mark your calendars because Liberty’s talent show is coming up and you will not want to miss it.
This is Liberty’s second ever talent show and it is being held on Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium and there are so many amazing acts lined up to preform. Admission is $4 if you buy before the show and $5 at the door. The event also will raise money for the March of Dimes.
One act set to perform is freshman Grace Medina. This is her first talent show at Liberty, but she competed in other talent shows while she was in middle and elementary school. For the show she is going to be singing the song “Hallelujah.”
“I decided to compete, not just because I have done it before, but because through music I express how I feel and I want to touch other people’s hearts through the music and the lyrics,” Medina said.
For those excited to see something different, junior Summer White is going to be hula dancing- which is where she is going to do advanced tricks with a hula hoop. This is her first year performing it at Liberty, but she is no stranger to the stage since she has done talent shows in both elementary and middle school.
“I am most excited to perform and see the audiences’ reactions,” White said.
The show is being put together in part by senior Cameron Jones who is the committee chair for the talent show committee in LHS Key Club. Everyone is putting in their time to make the show as amazing as possible for the audience and every act showcases some of Liberty’s talented students.
“I can’t really pick one act [as a favorite], they are all fantastic,” Jones said.
This is just a sneak peak into two of the acts set to perform for the show. To see those and the many others be sure to come to the show on Jan. 25.

Key Club holds the 2nd annual talent show
Students showcased numerous talents from singing to playing instruments at Key Club’s 2nd annual talent show on Jan. 25.
“There were a lot of great singers and dancers, as well as some other talented students,” judge Mr. Hysong said. “Caleb Woods’ crowd interaction was spectacular, Mikayla Bowman’s sign language was inspiring, and there were so many other enjoyable moments.”
Not only did the judges enjoy the show but so did the audience.
“My favorite part was just seeing everyone perform because you could tell how hard they had all worked,” senior Gillian Sanford said.
The purpose of the talent show it gave students an opportunity to show off their talents and engage in a friendly competition with one another. Also for Key Club to continue to conduct service projects with the community.
“I was most impressed by the depth of talent and the willingness of everyone to have fun,” Mr. Eversole said. “I know that putting together an event like this takes a lot of work, but throughout the rehearsals and the talent night itself, everyone was 100 percent supportive. It says a lot about Key Club and our talented kids that everything ran so well.”
They raised $244 for March of Dimes during intermission.
At the end of the show, there was a trophy for the most talented teacher and student. Dessa Outman and Mr. Kling were the winners of this year’s talent show. Outman performed an original song with her guitar. Kling sang ‘Say it ain’t so’ by Weezer while Barker played on the guitar.
There was a performance by previous winner, senior Christian Tebeau. Key Club hopes to have previous winners to continue to come back and perform as a new tradition.
Key Club was impressed with the amount of hard work and dedication that the students brought to the talent show and also how many people attended. For the upcoming years, they hope that the talent show will continue to grow and hope to have more teacher involvement in acts.
