On Wednesday, March 21st, West Leadership Academy students attended a special performance of the Hamilton Musical at the Performing Arts Center. The show was the culmination of a unit in which students spent weeks studying about Alexander Hamilton and the founding fathers. Teams from 60 schools competed by researching, writing, and performing original pieces that were submitted to the Hamilton cast. Before Wednesday’s show, students from several schools were selected to perform their pieces for the audience, including WLA students Jose Torres-Andazola, Zehydi Chaparro-Rojas, Rossy Martinez-Sanchez and Alexandra Andazola-Chavez. The event was covered by The Denver Post and Chalkbeat.
