This is the image for the news article titled PPS Students Perform at Inauguration

Musical performances by a Casco Bay High School sophomore and two Reiche Community School fifth-graders helped make the historic Jan. 2 inauguration of Maine’s first woman governor even more special.

CBHS student Alain Igiraneza gave a gorgeous rendition of the national anthem during the inauguration ceremony for Gov. Janet Mills at the Augusta Civic Center.

Also, a performance of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire,” sung by Reiche students Shy Paca, 11, and Natalia Mbadu, 10, brought the audience to its feet. Natalia and Shy also got a big hug from the governor.

The Portland Public Schools is very proud of all these students!
