Wheatland-Chili Central School District

All about music

“My social studies teacher let me bring my guitar in to sing for the class,” said international Jazz singer Nancy Kelly of her Wheatland-Chili days.

“I didn’t go to college but directly into show business.”

In the years since, she has received the Unsung Heroine Award from NOW; SAMMY for Best Female Vocalist & Best Jazz Group; DownBeat magazine readers voted her one of the top Jazz singers in the country twice.

She teaches private voice lessons at the college level.

“Listen to your heart and never give up on your dreams because dreams come true.”

    Wheatland-Chili Central School District - PTA holds congratulatory breakfast for State Championship Girls Varsity Soccer Team

    The PTA hosted a congratulatory breakfast for the State Championship Girls Varsity Soccer team along with head coach Gary Ward and Assistant Coach Jenn Quinn on Tuesday, April 17. PTA president Lisa Hitchings welcomed the group by saying, “The community is so proud of you girls. I represent the community when I say congratulations.” Hitchings then presented the players and coaches with commemorative championship key chains.

    This season was the team’s second state championship in a row and marked over 500 varsity wins for Coach Ward in his 36-year career. As the event ended, Coach Ward commented that this team “laid claim to his greatest team of all time. I hope to keep it going next year.”

    Next year’s team will see big changes as eight student-athletes graduate in June. All of the graduates will be continuing their education, and in some cases their soccer careers, in college.
