Mr. McCloud reflects on the event, “My favorite part of the talent show was seeing the diverse talents of our Middle School students. It is very tough to perform in front of a large audience and everyone involved did a spectacular job — in addition to our amazing talent show contestants, our hosts did an excellent job entertaining the audience as we moved from act to act. I believe that a vital role of education is to prepare students for the real world, as many of our students will eventually give public presentations and/or speak from a stage. It is great for students to get a chance to cultivate their performance skills at such an early age. In addition, I am grateful that our MVPS community recognizes and honors such talent.”
