“We’ve had a variety of hosts over the past several years and this year when the opportunity to bring in Michael presented itself, we felt that we had to pounce,” said Landon Adams, director of student activities. “We think that his versatility and sense of humor will make him the perfect fit to host this awesome event.”

The show, which will last approximately two hours, is free and open to the public. Details will follow regarding the featured student acts.

The MOSO Talent Show is presented by the Campus Activities Board, which is comprised of volunteer students who work throughout the school year with the Student Activities Office. CAB not only makes recommendations for what events to host on campus, but also helps to facilitate and advertise those events.
