Quincy area students and their families gathered on the lawn at Quincy High School the evening of May 24 for the annual Senior Expo and Concert on the Green.
The evening kicked off with a performance by third- and fourth-graders playing tunes on their recorders, followed by a series of performances from older grade levels and their bands. Music teacher Eliza Hardee introduced the groups and led them through their performances.
While the musical performances were underway, Quincy High School seniors presented their senior projects to those in attendance. The projects reflected the interests of the students and ranged from floral arranging, to holding a mock trial, to decorating rooms in the domestic violence center, to raising funds for automatic defibrillator batteries, and many more.
All high school students who attended were given a “swag bag” that contained a novel, a book light, bookmarks, a journal, pen and stickers funded by a Far North Literacy Grant.
The evening concluded with the students of all age groups performing “What a Wonderful World.”
