Kameron Posey, a Mena High School senior, has earned a position in the Arkansas All-State Choir for the second consecutive year. Auditions for the prestigious honors choir were held at Henderson State University on Friday, February 5. Over seven hundred students from across the state vied for positions in their respective voice parts. Posey was one of 118 young women who auditioned for an Alto I chair in the choir.
Posey has been in choir since second grade and has been a member of the Spotlight Singers for four years. She has earned a position in the Southwest Region All-Region Honors Choir each year for a total of six years, has served in various choir officer positions and has also been elected as choir student of the month. She is an honors student, is active in Upward Bound, serves as her church newsletter editor and is a frequent church soloist. She is the daughter of Andy and Shannon Posey.
Posey has also been awarded an $8,000 vocal scholarship at Henderson State University. According to Dr. Andrew Kreckmann, Director of Choral Activities at the university, the scholarship is Henderson’s highest non-major vocal award. Posey plans to pursue a pre-med major with a minor in music.
The Arkansas All State Choir will perform in concert at noon on Saturday, February 20, at the Hot Springs Convention Center. The concert is free and open to the public.
