Mexia Independent School District students demonstrated their skill with music in 14 different ways Friday night at the 62nd Annual Rotary Club of Mexia Talent Show.
Ten of the 14 entries took home cash prizes for putting forth the effort to perform – and judging by the audience’s response they did entertain.
The overall winner, and first prize winner in the senior division, was 16-year-old Alex Olvera, who did a freestyle beatbox routine taking home $500, composed of $250 for each win.
The talent show was held at the Mexia High School Auditorium, with Revendy Rhodes as emcee. Members of Boy Scout Troop 70 opened the evening by presenting the colors, followed by the opening act, which was a lineup of Aunt Rosie’s Day Care students who sang, danced and showed some of the many things they had learned so far.
