School Events & The Return of the Star Follies was a HUGE Success!

May 8, 2024 | Mary Danahey

Submitted by Mary Danahey of Incline Education Fund

By all measures, the return of the Incline Star Follies lived up to the hype. Performing for close to sold-out crowds, the Follies cast put on quite the show and reminded us all what the Incline community is all about. Over 70 students, alumni, parents, school admins, business partners and local community members spent countless hours putting together an evening of fun and frivolity.  They wowed the crowd with their dance moves, lip-syncing prowess and comedic talent (sometimes, newly-found skills!) and built friendships and connections in the process. Oh, and they had fun while raising a bunch of money for the schools.   

As the school season starts to wind down, there is still a LOT going on for parents, community members and students alike. Accolades, events to attend and a couple of great volunteer opportunities. Read on and join in!

Congrats are in order! Yet ANOTHER award for Incline High School students!

Congratulations to Riley Hunt and Asher Edwards for taking 1st place at the Skills USA competition. They competed against 10 other schools in Additive Manufacturing and will go onto Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia in late June.

Cool things to do!
