Hartington-Newcastle students Alison Karnes, Matthew Meisenheimer and Leah Reichle represented HNS in the 2019 NMEA All-State Chorus. All-State students earn a medal for each year they are selected, after an audition process. Senior Alison Karnes and sophomore Leah Reichle have each qualified one time. Meisenheimer, a senior, is a three-year All-State member. HNS had the most students selected out of the 17-school Lewis and Clark Conference. This is the highest honor a choral member can achieve in the state of Nebraska.
