Everyone’s a star and winner at ODY show
By Bruce Watson

Years ago the students at Owen D. Young Central School held a talent show during the school year, and this Friday, March 13, at 7 p.m., a legion of kindergarten through eighth grade students will take to the stage in the auditorium and show off their talents, hobbies and abilities.

“I am looking forward to spending time that evening with the participants and their families and friends who come to see them,” said Superintendent Virginia Keegan who initiated the show.  Keegan has recruited several teachers including high school English teacher Kit Hutchinson, elementary teacher Jason Doell, and music teacher Tom MacMillan to assist her in hosting, judging and running the lights at the talent show.  

“Hopefully, this will be the first of many more talent shows in the future and interest will grow,”  she said. Keegan described the upcoming event as an “everyone’s a winner” talent show. Parents have also been enlisted to help judge and help the evening go smooth.

Among the participants are Kory Ferguson and Jeremia Anglin, who are singing country superstar Kenny Chesney’s hit song “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” The two have decided to wear John Deere shirts for their performance while they hold microphones and singing along with Chesney’s recording.  Ferguson and Anglin have been working for two weeks on their act. According to Ferguson, they thought it “sounded like fun” when they heard about the talent show.

Fourth grader Emma Peters takes dance lessons in Herkimer and will be dancing hip-hop to “Rock Star” and sixth grader Kylah Hisert and five other girls will be singing two songs, including “Love Story” by country singer Taylor Swift and “Tattoo,” by American Idol’s Jordan Sparks.

When the students talk about the talent show, their enthusiasm shines through. There is no cost to attend and according to Doell, who has done some past work in radio and broadcasting, “It should be a pretty fun time.”  

Keegan expects the entire show to last an hour and is hoping that people will cheer for everyone and that everyone will leave with smiles on their faces.  


Bruce Watson is a freelance writer for The Mercury and currently substitutes for ODY. He is a recent retiree of RSCS.
