Each week we will be featuring a new set of senior choir members.
MEGAN SUZANNE CHERRY
Hello, my name is Megan Suzanne Cherry. I am the daughter of Angela and Scott Cherry, and sister to Mitchell, Madalyn, and Michael. This is my third year in the Center Grove Choral Department. Before joining choir, I played flute for four years in the Center Grove Band Department. I started as the dance captain of Surround Sound my sophomore and junior year, then moved to Debtones for my last year. Now I am one of three dance captains for the varsity choir.
I have so many amazing memories from being in choir, it is hard to choose just one to share. A memory that I will always cherish would be my first competition. I remember having so much fun performing with my friends and hanging out to watch other the choirs.
Other than choir, I have participated in competitive dance. My hobbies also include reading, writing, painting, and spending time with my friends. I am also part of the Early College Program, and I am set to graduate with an associate’s degree in June. I have not decided where I am going to college yet, but I plan to study political and legal sciences.
I would like to thank my amazing parents for allowing me to be a part of the choral program. They have endlessly supported and loved me through these past years. I would also like to thank Mr. Norman for giving me the opportunity to be not only a member, but also a leader in both Surround Sound and Debtones. Additionally, I would love to thank my sister, Madalyn, for convincing me to try out for choir and sharing her love of music with me. Lastly, I would like to say thank you to all of my other friends and family who have come to our shows and supported the program.
This choral program has given me so many chances to meet new people and expand my love for music. It has been a great few years, and I am excited to see what my future holds in years to come!
MAGGIE LYNN RUMPLE
My name is Maggie Lynn Rumple, and I’ve been involved in the Center Grove Choirs all four years of my high school career. It has consistently been the best part of my school days, the one class I always look forward to attending.
Music has always been a huge part of my life, and the ability to sing and dance and grow among my peers has been integral in my growth as a person. Each year it’s like I gain a whole new family. Those who are strangers at the beginning of the year end up being the closest of friends. The opportunities to learn and grow are endless. The feelings of pure joy, pride, and unity I feel while performing on stage with my peers is like none other. Every class period is full of laughter and fun. I’m eternally proud of every single choir in the department, not just my own. My experiences in Accents and Surround Sound are unparalleled as the happiest of my life.
I am forever grateful for my mother and father, Toby and David Rumple, for giving me the opportunity to take part in such a wonderful program. The time and effort they have put into assisting me to be the best I can be does not go unappreciated. Thanks to the program, I met someone at a choir competition who has become the best friend I’ve ever had in my entire life. I am so lucky for all the amazing things that show choir has brought into my world. It truly has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I will deeply miss every single thing about the program. Thank you so much to Mr. Norman and Mrs. Dice for making show choir the best part of my high school experience. And thank you, dear reader, for coming to see us do what we love.
