In this column, we are interested in featuring some of the younger folks who contribute to the positive ambiance of Evergreen, and Rebekah Romberg was nominated by more than one of our readers as an ideal adolescent to consider for It’s Nice to Know You. This picture of her was taken of her in costume for last year's Madrigal at the High School.
Rebekah is a junior at Evergreen High School and is a member of the Evergreen High School Marching Band. She plays the clarinet and next year will be on the band’s Leadership Staff as the leader of the clarinet section. Rebekah has been playing the clarinet since 4th grade but doesn’t limit her musical interests to playing instruments. She is also intricately involved in the Choral program at EHS and is currently one of 21 members who are in Choral Images, one of the top audition programs at her school.
Rebekah is looking forward to their final concert of the year which will be presented May 19 at Evergreen High Auditorium at 7pm. The concert is called "Anthology" and is a mixture of many mainstream tunes along with a few classical pieces.
Rebecca’s family, headed by her mother Laurie Romberg and her father Greg Romberg, has a long tradition of participation in community involvement and service; and Rebekah has followed in that path through her work with the Evergreen Key Club and the National Honor Society. This summer she plans to participate in music camps through the Evergreen Chorale.
It’s wonderful to have a warm, friendly and highly involved teenager like Rebekah in our community.
