Students Sing National Anthem

Kudos to IHS students Kim Cashin, Rachel Stasek, Mike Abbadini and Julia Abbadini. They participated in the CVCC's 40th anniversary celebration by singing the National Anthem with CVCC staff members. IHS was the only school in the CVCC district that had student participants. Thank you, Amy Hanratty, from CVCC for giving the students this opportunity. Way to represent, ladies and gentleman.
