BOTKINS — In anticipation of next month’s competition, Fairlawn and Miami East school choirs joined Botkins Local School in a full-day workshop dedicated to the improvement and interaction of the small school choirs last week.
Botkins vocal teacher Melissa Grunden organized the event along with the visiting choir directors.
“It’s almost like an all-day bootcamp,” Grunden said. “Just repetition, but, also, I think in hearing other groups, that also kind of kicks them into gear — it ups the excitement a little bit.”
Five Wapakoneta High School students were recently named winners of the school’s Laws of Life Essay Contest, and are now eligible to compete at the state level in the spring.

The essay was assigned during the fall to all WHS seniors in their english classes. Students were asked to submit an essay that defined certain laws or values that they live their lives by, according to WHS english teacher Linda Temple.
