Sherra with her overall aggregate trophy
Congratulations to Sherra Rogers! Sherra competed this past weekend at the Halifax Highland Dance Association's Spring Competition. She placed first in all of her dances in the Beginner 11 Years and Older category. She also came home as the overall winner in her category! Sherra is not only a talented highland dancer but she is also very accomplished in step dance, piping and plays with the College's grade four pipe band. Well done, Sherra!
