Coed Varsity Choir · Boys Athlete of the Month – March 2016

Boys Student Athlete: Jared Lewis

Jared has been active in musical performing in various activities throughout this school year. He recently performed at the Region 11 vocal solo and ensemble festival held at Morgan High School. On his vocal solo he received a straight superior rating, thus qualifying him to perform at the state festival to be held on April 30.

As a member of Madrigals, he also has organized a small a cappella performing group of various students within our music department. This group is called “Measure Up.” They have performed frequently in our area and as a part of recent choir concerts.

Jared also studies voice privately with Evelyn Harris, a professor of vocal music at Weber State University. He does much to support and sustain both our vocal and instrumental music programs at Bear River. As a choir director, on occasions, I have even been able to turn to Jared for director support. He can step up and take over a rehersal when called upon.

I appreciate Jared’s hard work ethic and his willingness to do much outside of the normal classroom to perfect his musical craft, as well as to help and be supportive to the teaching staff.

Brian Petersen, Choir Director

It has been a pleasure for me to teach Jared and observe him as he has been involved with the arts at our school. I have watched him in plays, sing in Madrigals and play instruments at games or on Friday morning when the band plays for the school.

He has an exhaustive schedule, yet he always has a smile on his face and is always positive.

In class he was always engaged and was willing to participate, sharing examples or providing valuable comments. For someone like myself who is not very musically gifted, I am envious of his musical talents. It is obvious he has worked very hard to perfect his talents. Additionally, he has ten a difficult class load with many upper division classes and still maintained a respectable 3.171 GPA. I want to wish Jared the best of luck in the future and know, as he continues to work hard, will be a great success.
