Good Midway Middle students get special visits from an Angel

-A A +A

Angel Thurman, an East Tennessee aspiring singer/songwriter, recently performed at Midway Middle School as an end-of-the-quarter incentive.

As part of the School-wide Positive Behavior Support plan, students who have no office referrals and are caught up on all school work at the end of each grading period are rewarded with a school-wide incentive for following the three school rules: Be Ready, Be Responsible, Be Respectful.

Thurman, a 2007 graduate of Meigs County High School, is a former student of Jennifer Armes, Midway Middle’s seventh-grade language arts teacher.

Armes invited Thurman to perform for the seventh-grade mid-term incentive in October.

The performance proved to be a hit with the students, and Thurman was invited back to perform a Country Christmas Concert in December.

During her latest visit, Thurman performed and autographed photos for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students and teachers.

Along with several Christmas favorites, she sang hits from a variety of artists, including Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum.

Thurman also performed one of the songs she had written, “Crazy About You.”

Thurman performs around the East Tennessee area and hopes to pursue a career in country music.

She plans to audition for the NBC summer series, “America’s Got Talent,” in the spring.
