The talents of Pulaski County High School’s Moriah Hinton and Carrie Pascoe have not only earned the students recognition, but money for their school, as well.
Hinton and Pascoe were recognized at a session of Pulaski County School Board with Golden Apple Awards for their performances at the Shelor Motor Mile “Growing the Future Talent Show.” The students competed in the “Cougars Got Talent” contest in September, earning them a spot in the regional talent competition at Christiansburg High School in October.
The two competed against 14 other students from Auburn, Christiansburg, Blacksburg, Floyd, Giles and Narrows high schools.
Hinton placed second in the talent show, with her performance of Kellie Pickler’s, “I Wonder Why,” winning $1,500 for herself and $10,000 for PCHS. The Drama Department will use the money to make renovations to the Little Theatre. Pascoe’s clogging routine earned her an honorable mention and $100.
The board thanked the students for “their role in displaying their talents to promote Pulaski County High School.”
