The Poteau High School Choir has been invited to perform at the world famous Carnegie Hall in New York City in May of 2012, and one local doctor is doing her part to help her local high school choir. Dr. Myra Gregory hand made quilt features the names of the Poteau Pirate Football team from Freshman to Seniors. The quilt is on display at Dr. Gregory's office at 2202 North Broadway in Poteau.
The quilt will be auctioned to the highest bidder through January 2, 2012. All of the proceeds of the sale will benefit the Poteau High School Choirs trip. It has been stated that it will cost approximately $71,000 to fund this once in a lifetime trip. PHS choir has been organizing fund raisers to help pay their way.
According to PHS choir director Bill King, most of the money to finance the trip comes in the form of donations from the former choir members, alumni, corporations, and the people of Poteau.
