The Ohio American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary sponsors the annual “Americanism and Government Test” for high school students throughout the state challenging students’ knowledge on subjects of American patriotism and national, state, and local politics and government. Davidson had 137 students who volunteered and participated in the test on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016. The top scoring male and female students in each grade are honored as school-level winners and will advance to district and state competition. This year’s Davidson winners are freshmen Joel Brennen and Elsa Toland, sophomores Zakarie Hussein and Faith Sanchez, juniors Andrew Taylor and Katy Lybbert, and seniors Colin Biddinger and Katie Toledo.

The Hilliard Davidson Orchestra will be on the road showcasing their talents at two upcoming music conferences. The first will be held in Cleveland in February for the Ohio Music Education Association State Conference. At this prestigious event, the Davidson Orchestra will perform for Music teachers from all around Ohio, including several university ensembles and professional groups. The group will then travel to Pittsburgh in March for the National Orchestra Festival and the American String Teacher Association National Conference. They will compete for a national ranking with schools from across the country. Both conferences required an audition for participation, but only a small percentage of auditioning groups were selected. These opportunities will give our students the chance to engage in the fine arts and receive valuable feedback to better their musical skills and give them a chance to interact with performance ensembles from across the country.
