Steve Green Musical Achievement Award
My name is Sophie Barnett and I received the Beverly Fiore and the Steve Green scholarships. I plan to continue my education at Illinois State University and major in elementary education with a minor in theater. During my time at Lisle the one thing that was the most influential to me was the music department. I was involved in Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Jazz Combo, Concert Choir and Varsity Singers. I was also in the musicals every year, being the lead my Senior year. I loved being in the musicals because they helped me to find who I am, what I excel at, and what I want to study at college.
I would like to send my sincere thanks to all of the Lisle High School Alumni and members of the Carlin Nalley Foundation who selected me for the two scholarships. It really means a lot to me and I will always remember the generous gesture. It will be a tremendous help as I begin my time at Illinois State.
