ST. CLOUD -- Tech High School students filed into the gym this morning (Friday) for a special thank you performance.

Tech's efforts with the "We Act" program landed them a special visit from the Kenyan Boys Choir and inspirational speaker, Chris Tse.

The 25 member choir sang contemporary African and European pieces. Tech was the first high school in the United States to become a "We Act" school.

They were also among five local schools to participate in Minnesota's first "We Day" in St. Paul earlier this week.

Jennifer Day is the advisor of Tech's "We Act" program. She says the organization Free The Children wanted to thank the school district for all of their hard work.

Students from South Junior High School also attended the assembly. Tech student, April Stenseth says the group was fun to watch and listen to.

The boys choir is scheduled to perform at Apollo High School later this afternoon (Friday). Some students from Kennedy and North Junior High are planning on attending the thank you event.
