Senior Send-off: Katie Sheldon
Voice student Katie Sheldon is a young woman with diverse interests. She plans to sing for the rest of her life, but that's not all she plans to do. In the fall she'll start pursuing a political science degree at the University of Nebraska.
We've gotten to know Katie well over her past 12 years here at Music House. We agree with her voice teacher, Ben Chaverin, who says, "She is gonna go far in politics!" Whatever she does, she'll go far.
And here's what Katie had to say when we interviewed her recently.
