The musical theatre program at Beach has given me more than the opportunity to perform fun, iconic shows. It has given me a family for life! The program is open for anyone, performer or not, and it will truly welcome you with open arms.

If you never take risks, there will be no reward. I was offered a big opportunity to start my career in law enforcement and I took it. This will help me tremendously in my future career.

Attending the DECA State Career Development Conference was one of my favorite high school experiences. I was able to meet and network with many other high school students who have similar college and career aspirations.
