Congratulations to Leah Buchanan for being another recipient through the Crestone Performances Scholarship Program. Leah is a seventh grader at the Crestone Charter School and has been painting ever since she can remember. She was national champion of the Daughters of the American Revolution art contest 2 years ago. Our scholarship has provided her with art supplies and a very cool drawing table. We hope this will help bloom her artistic passion.   

We had another amazing recording session with scholarship winners Daigen Christensen and Logan Maykowski at Sovereign Sol Studios in Crestone. It turns out that this is their senior project and we are going all out, creating a finished project with full sound and video production. CPI president Peter VanHorn was their band teacher at Moffat last year and he has joined in on the recordings as well as Logan’s brother Luke. This is an all-out rock band experience. Part of this educational experience includes the mix-down process, video synching and final recording production. This is way more fun than we thought it would be. 

Crestone Performances is looking for board members to team with us to enhance the lives of students and our community. We meet once a month and are totally cool. Call for info. 

Lastly, sadly, another office assistant is moving out-of-state so we are looking again for help. The job is extremely rewarding to the soul and includes bookkeeping, office work, carnival production, web work and graphics. Send resumes to: CPI, P.O. Box 6, Crestone, CO 81131 or call 719-256-4533.
