Russell Sending Five to State KMEA

KMEAThree students from Russell High School and two from Ruppenthal Middle School have been selected for Kansas Music Educators Association All-State Choirs.

Nathan Henderson and James Pummell from Ruppenthal Middle School both made the Mid-Level All-State Choir.

From Russell High School, Jennifer Pummell will be in the All-State High School Women's Choir, and Carolyn Kontour and Elijah Fontanez are both in the All-State High School Mixed Choir.

To be selected, middle school students sent a recorded audition in September. The high school students participated in a live audition in November, which qualified them for district honor choir in December. Once their attendance and participation in that choir were confirmed, the best scoring singers from the November audition qualified for the state convention.

The KMEA Convention will be held at the Century II Performing Arts and Convention Center in Wichita in February.
