Students to Present Winning Submissions


On Tuesday, April the 18th, students who placed first in their category in the Mountain Breeze competition will be reading their works aloud. The event will take place in the Student Union Building at 3:30. Every student on campus is invited to experience the creativity, ingenuity, and hard work that went into these pieces. Friends and family of the presenters will also be welcome at this event.

We encourage all students to attend and support the arts on the Blue Mountain campus, and also just to support the students who will be recognized at the event. Refreshments will be served after the reading.
