Priya Kukreja was also recognized as the 2017 Nebraska Journalist of the Year!
All large ensembles (1st hour Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Men's Choir, Women's Choir, and Singer's Choir) earned I's (top scores) from all judges, resulting in the much-sought-after score of I+ (Superior plus).
This is the first time all groups from MNHS earned this distinction!
