Music Department Honors

Kayli DePriest, Staff Writer

Greenbrier County Choir Students from GEHS and GWHS.


GEHS Choir Director Carrie Neese with the WVMEA All-State Chorus: sophomore Lily Dense, senior Jamie Vance, junior Heather Jones, and seniors Kayli DePriest, and Caliyah Newsome.

2021-2022 has been a rewarding year not only for GEHS sports, but for the arts, too!

As a choir member of seven years, I feel compelled to recognize my peers in the music department who have gone above and beyond this year, working hard to memorize and perfect musical pieces for performances and competitions.
