Senior year for Covenant students is a time of looking forward to post-grad opportunities, but also looking backward at the things accomplished and the growth experienced over the past four years of life.

In Anna Rohl’s recent review of Man of La Mancha (Full disclosure: I was the sound designer for this show, although I was not part of the run crew), Rohl brought up some legitimate, serious criticisms of the production.
