Anthem Singer: Samantha Zaitman
The National Anthem will be sung by Samantha Zaitman, a 12 year old in 7th grade at Palmetto Middle School. There she started Drama Class and has been involved in various productions. She was invited to the Junior Thespian Competition which was an eye opening event for her. It was an incredible experience. She’s done two plays at her school which were great in enhancing her love of being on stage. These were Decades in December and recently Modern Millie JR which she was ensemble with many parts. She enjoyed them both very much. Samantha has also had the prestigious opportunity to be invited to Relay for Life in 2017 and 2018 to sing the National Anthem. This has been by far one of her most treasured events. Last year, Samantha participated in the July 4th Celebration singing the anthem and this year she will be joining the Village once again.
