CNCC talent show sees success in 1st year

— Taking the stage, Alayna Behrman’s gold and white dress glimmered Saturday evening under the bright spotlight in the Moffat County High School auditorium.

Only 10-years-old, Behrman competed in the Colorado North-

western Community College Talent Show showcasing her singing abilities and won first place.

With a wide variety of talents, including singers, guitarists, poetry readings, dancers and even an act featuring Molly the dog, the show never was short of skilled performers.

After much deliberation by judges Kathy Simpson, instructor of biology at CNCC in Craig, Thom Schnellinger, MCHS principal, and CNCC student Jamie Miller, the top three winners were announced. With Alayna Behrman in first, Natalie and Emily Moore took second place for their stickman dance and Sabrina Zachary took third place for her musical performance.

The CNCC student council and faculty advisor performed skits to introduce each act and entertained the audience with a lip dub of “Don’t Stop Believing” during the judge’s deliberation. The Cedar Mountain Orchestra performed prior to the show and during intermission.

Zoe Sowers, CNCC student body president, and Zach Emerson, CNCC student body treasurer, performed and emceed the event and said they felt it was a success.

“It was such a crazy experience,” Emerson said. “You don’t realize until it’s over how much fun it was.”

Sowers said she thought the event went well and had a higher turnout then she expected.

“We want it to become an annual thing,” Sowers said. “We hope they do it again next year.”
