The praise band held a retreat for its members Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Monday morning. Led by campus minister Andrea Essner and music teacher Robert Pherigo, the students shared stories about themselves and played games together in the choir room.

Members shared information about themselves like their favorite sledding stories and why they decided to join praise band in the first place in order to get to know each better. Later on, the group was taken to see a jazz band concert perform.

Junior Lauren Daugherty is a member of praise band who has loved her entire experience being a part of it.

“I love spending time with a group of people who love to praise God through music,” Daugherty said. “The praise band retreat is one of my favorite things each year.”

Hi! I’m Annabelle Meloy, a third-year staffer and Darticated News Editor. I’m so excited to be a part of staff this year and to write stories that really matter to you, the people of STA. When I’m not feverishly working on finishing a Dart story, you can most likely see me chilling with Mr. Egner on the second floor of Donnelly or resolving many math problems in the Hub. My favorite thing to do is play with my three dogs and watch the amazing show The Office. I’m really eager to see what the rest of the school year brings because I know this will be one of the best years for the Dart.
