Lily Brower

Lily Brower, a senior who transferred to Perry in her sophomore year, is currently in all four choir sections. She is only one of two seniors to be in all four choirs.

“I was in choir at my other school and I knew I liked it,” Brower said. “I’ve been in choir since I was around 6. I needed a fine arts credit, so I asked ‘why not?’”

She joined choir during her sophomore year and has maintained her passion for choir through the following years of her high school career.

Brower manages to excel in all four choirs and has helped her choirs receive awards such as first place gold at the Heritage festival at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Brower also received the Spirit Award, which was awarded to her by her peers for being the most spirited and energetic in her class.

“My facial expressions are really good and I just always look like I’m having a good time up there – because I am,” Brower said.

Over the years, many students create a strong bond with their teachers, but no bond can be compared to the bond that choir students have with Jameson Staley, the choir teacher.

“I love everyone endlessly,” Brower continued. “And Mr. Staley is the coolest man in the world. It’s been a good three years.”

Taylor LeSueur

Taylor LeSueur, a senior, has been in choir since sophomore year, and hopes to continue his choir career after he graduates.

This school year he has been an important part of both the concert and jazz choirs. “In his sophomore and junior years, he was selected to attend the All-State and Regional competitions. LeSueur was ranked 13th in the state and chosen to be a part of the Honor Choir.

“I won the Teddy Bear Award [in the choir classroom] because I am so nice to everyone,” LeSueur said, smiling.

For LeSueur, being nice creates his character. It is his character that contributed to his success at becoming the National Honors Society Treasurer. He also plans on attending Brigham Young University (BYU) after his Latter-day Saints Mission to study choir and sing in Vocalpoint, BYU’s acapella group. He plans to sing in their Men’s Choir as well. LeSueur also wishes to attend Stanford University for graduate school.

“I’m going to miss all the people, I mean just the great memories and great friends and great times,” LeSueur said. “High school has seriously been so much fun and everybody who has made [it] so awesome for me, I’m grateful for them.”
