Wylie youth honored their faith, families and veterans during a Performing Arts Showcase last month.
Students from Wylie Preparatory Academy, a university-model school sprawled across 14 acres on Skyview Court, took the stage Friday, April 26, at Firewheel Bible Fellowship to perform their award-winning one-act plays, play music and sing for their parents and friends.
The one-act plays, featuring students enrolled in Wylie Prep’s junior high and high school campuses, won numerous awards at a recent district competition. The junior high play advanced to regionals – where it won several awards – and the high school students took home some hardware at the state level.
“In addition to their hard work with rehearsals and memorizing their lines, students learned a new appreciation for military members and their families,” said director Kelly Decker. “Students were able to hear from several military members and their families about the sacrifices involved in service to our country. Wylie Prep alumnus Darryl Meeks and his wife, a Wylie East alumna, visited with student about their transition to military life. We are so grateful to all who serve.”
