On Friday, May 4th, Provo High students had the unique opportunity to attend the Broadway Musical Hamilton. Before the performance, students from all over the state performed student pieces- poems, raps, songs, and one-scene original acts. Students also posed various questions to the cast during a Q&A session:
To the question “What would you say to your younger self?” the collective response seemed to be trust. Trust in the process. Trust in your yourself. Trust that you are exactly where you need to be in this moment. Trust that whatever you are going through, it’s for a reason. Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox also addressed the students with the hope that every student find their voice, and, like Hamilton, to be fearless with that voice.
“What is a legacy? It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see.” –Hamilton, The World Was Wide Enough.
With this year’s PHS theme of Leave Your Legacy, that line certainly resonated. And while the line that resonated most differed from one person to the next, PHS students and staff shared one commonality: An abundance of gratitude to have been a part of #EduHam.
