Chapter 373 – Quincy High School
Adviser Gregory Prouse
Tristan McMichael is finishing his time at Quincy Junior / Senior High School where he is serving as the president of his CSF Chapter. When he is not playing soccer or tennis, he spends his time working with the High Sierra Community Orchestra or the Plumas Performing Arts Organization.
Martha M. Walters, the Board President, Plumas Performing Arts talks about Tristan’s time working with PPA, “Tristan brought an idea to our board in May to hold a virtual performance competition open to high schoolers throughout the county. He structured it in such a way as to be a low barrier to participation from our students while recruiting top-notch judges to ensure that participants received helpful feedback in a positive environment.” She continues, “The logistical and administrative challenges of organizing this event were beautifully managed by Tristan, and we saw a larger impact from providing a creative outlet to young performers.” You can feel Tristan’s passion for PPA, since he co-founded the nonprofit Plumas Performing Arts, whose mission is to support the performing arts at all ages and levels throughout Plumas County.
Gregory Prouse, the CSF Adviser at Quincy JR/SR High uses Tristan’s own words to comment about him, “”you should know that I care about the people around me and will not hesitate to stand up when there is an injustice”
In the Fall, Tristan plans to attend University of the Pacific (UOP) and major in Music Education and eventually desires to become a Music Teacher.
