The EHS team is the defending State Jazz Champion and Academic State Champion.

 

EHS students Kaylee Percival, Lauren Jackson and Piper Tucker qualified as soloists, and Meris Miller/Piper Tucker qualified with a small ensemble at the state qualifier at Edison High School in Tulsa on November 11.
