Making Memories: Throughout all-state, Liam Pohlmann (21) has made many different memories with the many different people he has met. My favorite part of all-state is everyone I meet through the ensemble, Pohlmann said. To this day, I am still friends and actively talk to people that I met in all-state. Although he may not go to the same school as them, he still holds all the experiences they shared throughout all-state.

Yes to Open Campus: Saying yes to open campus lunch, Trevor Elliot (23) agrees with the idea of having an open campus lunch. I feel like an open campus would be a good thing for students, Elliot said. I also feel like COVID-19 has played a big role in lunch too because were so packed up together.
