  • Like many other students at John Hardin High School, sophomore Christopher Narmi has found the performing arts beneficial in a variety of ways.

    At 15, Narmi already knows he wants to be a professional musician.

    Narmi, who is in choir and speech, performed in the school’s production of “Hairspray” in February. He said being involved in theater, choir and speech has helped him develop rhythm and an ear for music.

    The performing arts, he said, also allow him the opportunity to be creative and expressive.
