THE OWOSSO Madrigal Choir, directed by Mrs. Nieuwkoop, led the students and staff at Owosso High School in the singing of the National Anthem at 1:00 pm Friday, Sept. 11.
The event was to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the National Anthem and a moment of remembrance for 9/11. The choir led the school in an attempt to set a Guinness World record. The American Public Education Foundation provided all schools the opportunity to participate in this event, along with free educational materials to teach the words and meaning of the National Anthem. Before the National Anthem was sung, Karen VanEpps (shown here holding the mirophone for the choir), Lincoln High School Principal, led the school in a moment of silence for 9/11.
