Liberty High School had the opportunity to have country-music singer, Jared Blake, speak to our students. Jared appeared on NBC’s “The Voice” (Season 1) as a semi-finalist. The P.E. Department hosted an assembly with a mini-concert and students were able to meet Jared afterward. Students may have received an autographed photo to bring home. The kids were very excited in welcoming Mr. Blake in discussing how to choose their own unique path in life, free from the use of drugs or alcohol.
