Gracie Rowe, a Heard High School senior, recently produced a Christmas Show as part of a Heard County 4-H project.

The free show was held at the Old Recreation Department on December 18th in front of a large group of patrons. It featured performances by several very talented high school students and refreshments were available afterwards.

In addition to Rowe, the cast featured seniors Destini Tobias, Victoria Buker, Chelsea Brazeal, and Cody Vann.

Underclassmen performers were juniors Caitlin Wiggins, Katy Stutts, Abbie Padgett, sophomores Hope Daniel, Cody Norris, Sydney Reeves, Natalie Moncus, Elijah Toney, Bradley Barber, and freshmen Madelyn Rusinyak and Brittany Witcher.

“A Clover Christmas is a project club through Heard County 4-H and it brought together students from all different backgrounds and organizations to come together and produce a show full of everyone’s favorite Christmas carols. I want to thank everyone who collaborated on it; the show went really well and I would like to give a special out to Caitlin Wiggins and Abbie Padgett because they are not even dancers but they danced for us anyway,” stated Rowe after the show.

Some of the songs performed at the show included Run, Run Rudolph, Silent Night, Hippopotamus for Christmas, and We Need a little Christmas.During the closing number, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, the entire audience was invited to join in and participate.

Gracie Rowe is the student director of the high school chorus, the president of the National Honor Society, 4-H, and student council. She is also co-editor of the Heard High newspaper, The Warcry, and has been a varsity cheerleader for three years. Gracie plans to attend the University of Georgia next fall.
