Senior Spotlight

Each week we will be featuring a new set of senior choir members.

Audrey Ellis

My name is Audrey Claire Ellis. My parents are BJ and Katy Ellis. I have a younger sister, Sophia, a freshman in Accents. This is my fourth year in the CG choir program. During my freshman year, I was in the Accents, and I have been in Surround Sound every year since. This year, I have had the honor of being one of the Company Managers of this amazing group, and it has been one of the most amazing experiences ever.

My absolute favorite memory in the choir program was from the 2022- 2023 competition season. All the CG choirs had competed at Lafayette-Jefferson, and Surround Sound won Grand Champs, Best Vocals, and Best Visuals. Surround Sound had not won those awards for seven years before that day. Eventually, all four CG groups had gone on to win Grand Champs, Best Vocals, and Best Visuals in their respective groups. It had been thirteen years since all four CG choirs had gotten those awards in one competition. Celebrating this with some of my best friends will always be my favorite memories from this program.

After I graduate from CGHS, I plan to go to college and major in Criminology or Criminal Justice.

I would like to thank Mr. Norman, Mrs. Dice, and everyone involved in making the choir program possible. This program holds a very special place in my heart, and none of it would have been possible without the people who keep this program running. I would also like to thank my parents for always supporting me and my decisions in this program. Although my mom is no longer with us, she loved this program and supported everything I did during my time in this program. Finally, I would like to thank the people I met and later became friends with through this program. The CG choir program has given me some of my best friends, and I will forever be grateful for that. I will always be thankful for everything the choir program has done for me.

Jaslyn LaFountain

My name is Jaslyn LaFountain. This is my fourth year in high school choir and my first year in a JV choir. I have been in choir since fourth grade. I’ve always loved singing, and my love for singing was first discovered with the help of Mrs.Gainey in elementary school. Mr. Pearson and Ms.Nance (Mrs.Sigafoes) continued to encourage my passion for singing throughout middle school and even got me to join the honor choir in eighth grade.

While singing has always been a passion of mine, I make sure that I’m involved in other activities. One of my favorite clubs that I am a part of is Model United Nations. I love MUN. It’s been such an enjoyable experience since freshman year. I have been to three IU Model United Nations conferences since freshman year, and I plan on attending my fourth and final one this year.

Another club I enjoy is Theatre. I have been involved in five productions since sophomore year. I am always in the crew working on the behind-the-scenes part of the productions. I love seeing all of our hard work come together in the end to create intricate and realistic scenes. One of our biggest accomplishments has to be when we made a working fountain for Freaky Friday.

I have always loved science and pushed myself to explore it further. My overall goal is to attend Purdue University and become a veterinarian. I have wanted to be a veterinarian since I was in third grade. Every step I take is to move me closer to that goal. I just want to help animals in any way that I can and help families keep their beloved pets. I wouldn’t be able to do anything without the support of my mom, Amanda, and my dad, Jeremy. They’ve pushed me out of my comfort zone to help me move closer to my goals and achieve the things I want to accomplish in life.
