Patterson Education Foundation hosted the Second “Patterson’s Got Talent’ on Saturday, March 8. The evening featured six local singers and two dancers from Gustine. The students from third to 10th grade all received participation certificates.
First place winner Eliana Cortes sang the song, “Let It Go” and was also presented with a plaque.
The money raised is used for grants that will be presented to Patterson Joint Unified School District teachers at the May 6 school district art show, according to Nancy Anders, PEF board member.
“Again this year we had many talented artists performing at our show, which included a dance act called Unique Glamour by two students from Gustine Middle School,” said Anders. “We are pleased that our show is starting to involve the whole West Side and look forward to next year’s show showcasing even more talent.”
Tori Scoles, Patterson High School Drama teacher, was master of ceremonies for the talent show. Judges were Phil Alfano, superintendent of PJUSD schools, Patterson Mayor Luis Molina, Sherry Fowler, a retired teacher, and Fred Fowler, board member of PEF.
