“My experiences in the Music and Drama Departments at Shawnee have prepared me for success because of their rigorous nature and the opportunities for student leadership. Mr. Joubert and Mrs. Kehl do incredible jobs of creating great classroom environments that foster creativity and camaraderie. However, they never fail to push us to grow as musicians and people. I think people underestimate how challenging some music programs can be. Yet, I am so thankful that they are as rigorous as they are because it has allowed me to grow far beyond what I expected within my four years.”
