Students from Ohio Hi-Point’s DECA Chapter at Marysville High School are spearheading the school’s first Marysville’s Got Talent show on Friday, March 3.
The show starts at 7 p.m. at Marysville High School in the Alumni Hall Performing Arts Center and will feature various local performers, raffle baskets consisting of items donated from local businesses, and more.
Community members can purchase tickets at the door for $5 per person. All proceeds from the show will go directly into funding the 2023-2024 upstart of Warm Clothes for Kids in Union County. Warm Clothes for Kids works in partnership with local schools and Walmart to provide new clothing to children living below the poverty line. The organization started in Bellefontaine in 2010.
The idea to host a talent show came from Ohio Hi-Point/Marysville DECA members Aleah Tornberg and Paige Mobley. To help fund the project, the students received a grant from Lead4Change, a leadership program with a community service framework. The students hope to present the event and the impact it had on the community as part of their DECA state competition project.
Students involved in the OHP/Marysville DECA chapter are enrolled in Ohio Hi-Point’s Supply Chain Management satellite program at Marysville High School.
