Friday night at 7:30, Kenston High School hosted the 2008 Variety Show. Performing were an array of bands, singers, dancers, and other talented students. Every year, the Variety Show is a way to raise money for the National Honor Society in order to distribute to organizations in the following years. The attendance of the show was incredible. Tickets were sold out, and the entire auditorium was filled. Nonetheless, the show turned out to be a great success. NHS officer Colleen Downie said, "I had a great time being a part of the Variety Show. The hard work and dedication of the National Honor Society was reflected at Friday night's performance."
Hosting the show was Kenston’s own National Honor Society, who organized the night’s performances. The process for NHS was long and involved. It began back in February with student auditions which became a difficult and selective process because of the large qualified turnout. Closer to the show, rehearsals were held to perfect the entirety of the show. The Bake Sale, Carnation Grams, security, ticket sales, and other show accommodations were arranged and carried out by NHS, Mr. Kenen, and other volunteers. Overall, the Variety Show was very enjoyable and a great spectacle for the whole school and community. Thank you to everyone involved.
