Andre Agassi Makes Appearance in Tyson's Corner

Besides being a world champion tennis player, Andre Agassi is a snowboarder, a cook, “20 + 20 years old,” and a humanitarian. Agassi appeared today at Fink's Jewelers in Tyson’s Corner to speak about his charity, the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education. This foundation has contributed $150 million to educational initiatives to date.

Agassi played in his first professional tournament when he was just 15 years old. What is the first thing that comes to Agassi’s mind when he thinks about tennis? Well, first of all “physical pain,” he joked after playing last night. But what tennis truly brings to mind for Agassi is the word “grateful.” He is grateful for what tennis taught him about himself, and he encouraged the children to push themselves in whatever they do because it will make them better people.

Chantilly High School's Show Choir Makes Top Spot in “Parade” Magazine

A show choir, or more commonly known as a "glee club" because the recent Fox hit series Glee, is not your average standing choir. These groups have costumes, sets, choregraphy and are more like a vegas show or a broadway musical all mixed into one. Chantilly Highschool's show choir, "Touch of Class," which is their most advanced emsemble, comprised of sophomores through seniors, is having quite a year. Not only does this year mark the 25th season for the show choir at Chantilly High School, they most recently advanced to the Top 10 amongst thousands of entries in Parade Magazine's search for America's Favorite Show Choirs. Chantilly High School's "Touch of Class" came in 3rd!
