Florida student sings National AnthemAbout 4,000 Daytona Beach area baseball fans, including about a dozen Palmer students, joined 10th quarter student Lauren Ameris as she sang the National Anthem prior to the Daytona Cubs game during the recent Memorial Day Weekend.
The Daytona Cubs are the “High A” affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.

Lauren did a fantastic job with the pre-game anthem, as evidenced by the raucous ovation she received upon completion. No doubt Lauren could have a second career as a vocalist, if she so chooses.

“That was one of the best anthems all year," said Jim Jaworski, director of group sales for the Daytona Cubs. "It’s just another way for us to team up with a great supporter like Palmer College."
