On Friday, Tonality, the UCEC Glee Club, competed in the 2016 NC High School A Cappella presented by Liquid 5th. Tonality finished 2nd to Northwood High School's Pitch Please. Justine Gimenez, a UCEC Junior, received the Best Vocal Percussion Award. Also performing were the UCEC SuperSeniors, who performed an exhibition set, along with the University of Florida's No Southern Accent and the UNCC's Finer Forty-Niners.
Fernando Bonilla, a senior here at UCEC, has the privilege of being accepted to John’s Hopkins University. Along with it comes a full-ride scholarship, giving him the opportunity to attend the University in Maryland, tuition-free, with his textbooks, room and board, and ancillary expenses also paid for. John’s Hopkins routinely receives over 24,000 applications for admittance, and out of those only 3,200 are admitted. So, this is a big honor for both Fernando and UCEC, they definitely see his potential.
UCEC is deeply saddened to hear that Mrs. Diana Gagne is no longer going to be the college liasion at our school. After four years, Mrs. Gagne was used to being badgered by students who are constantly wanting to change their schedules, and dealing with the many textbooks that come her way. Even though it looked stressful to be the college liaison, Mrs. Gagne always managed to finish every task with a smile. She did her job like nobody else could.
