Talent show at South to be held Wednesday

The Student Government Association of Washington County Public Schools is presenting a student talent show on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at South Hagerstown High School.

 Inclement weather forced a change in the original scheduled date, Jan. 21. Talents that include singing and performing music, dancing, a drum solo and a performance by a band from Hancock will be on display by middle and high school students.

A panel of judges will rate the performances and the top three finishers earn cash prizes.

An admission fee of $5 for adults and $3 for students will be asked, and proceeds earned from the event are earmarked for the SGA’s state charity, “Saving the Bay,” and a local charity, “Youth United Way.”

Superintendent to hold listening session

The public is invited to a listening session with Clayton Wilcox, superintendent of Washington County Public Schools, Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Clear Spring High School.

Wilcox will present brief opening remarks, followed by a question-and-answer forum. Wilcox welcomes parents, students and citizens to discuss issues and ask questions.

Another listening session is tentatively planned for the spring, but a date and location have not been determined.
