Have YOU Got Talent? MHS Students Do!

This past Thursday, January 10th, the Class of 2013 organized a talent competition featuring some of Melrose High School's finest musicians and dancers - a number of whom performed original works. Sponsored by many generous Melrose businesses and hosted by witty and glib seniors Betty Richardson and Allie Grady, the two-and-a-half hour program showcased twelve groups and individuals. The jam-packed house enthusiastically supported each act, including the two special guests appearing while the judges deliberated: the ever-popular Scotty and the Gang (with band members from the MHS Class of 2012) and X Factor contestant Jillian Jensen. The night was a rousing success and a fantastic way to kick off 2013!
