For the benefit of your readers, which high school do each attend? I know that Hannah is at South, but what about the rest of the winners? It would be nice if everyone in the community wrote their principals to see that these students receive some kind of public recognition, like we do with the all state athletes.

The concert was great. We are very proud of all of our kids! Alyssa, Connor and Hannah are all from Grosse Pointe South High School, and Jonathan is from Ligget.
