What Are Leigh Students Up To?
Leigh’s Symphonic Band received a "Superior" Rating at their festival last weekend at Monta Vista High School. Superior is the highest rating a group can receive in their given category. They received top ratings in 4 of 5 captions! This was only their second year at CMEA or a festival in general! These students have put in a tremendous amount of work that showed up today in a fantastic performance.
Just last week, one of Leigh's very own students traveled to Cambridge, Massachusetts for a chance to present some of her independent research at the MIT(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Inspire Competition! Congratulations to sophomore Mrunali Manjrekar for receiving this exceptional opportunity and being chosen as one of 105 finalist projects out of over 1100 submissions worldwide!
This week Dani Wheeler was recognized by REACH Youth Scholarship for overcoming adversity and obstacles to reach her goals. She was awarded a $3,000 scholarship. Dani’s family, several of them from the County DHOH program, Jake Shaughnessy, and prominent community members from BAWSI attended to support Dani. What an incredible morning recognizing youth from all over Santa Clara County where award winners were recognized by Ronnie Lott and Brandi Chastain, co-chairs of the committee.
