Odessa High School student named Texas Music Scholar

The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) has honored Odessa High School senior Caroline Reed (who goes by her middle name, Rose) as a Texas Music Scholar, a distinction given to students who maintain an overall A average, perform a class 1 solo for the UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest or in a public performance, participated in the TMEA All-State process and earned membership in an All-Region ensemble, and exhibit citizenship in school and community.

“In addition to being so bright and talented,” said OHS Choir Director Ginger Storey. “She is a wonderful person who exhibits excellent behavior and character. Rose is a class act!” 

Ms. Reed is a three-year member of the All-Region Choir and was first alternate to the Area round of auditions. This year she qualified for the Texas State Solo & Ensemble Contest. 

Ms. Reed is ranked #8 in the OHS senior class. She is also involved in OHS Theatre Production and was one of three actors in the UIL One Act Play that advanced to bi-district, where she received an Honorable Mention award and was named to the All-Star Cast.  

Rose will receive her TMEA certificate at the Odessa High School awards banquet on May 24.  

The Texas Music Educators Association is an association of more than 13,000 music teachers whose goals are to support music education in Texas, provide professional growth opportunities for educators, foster public support for music in schools and offer quality experiences for students. Last year fewer than 2,500 students were named TMEA Texas Music Scholar.
