He was also selected for the Vocal Music All-District Honor Chorus and was a member of the Ada High Mixed Ensemble which earned a superior at Little Dixie Vocal Contest. 

Malm is also a member of the swim team.

Mann, the daughter of Karen and John Mann, has been selected to All-District Choir from ninth through 12th grade.  She has also been selected to Junior High All-State Choir in ninth grade, All-State Women’s Choir in 11th grade as well as this year’s selection to the All-State Mixed Choir.

Mann has earned superior ratings in both vocal solo and ensemble at both District and State from her freshman year to her senior year. She also rated superior at this fall's Little Dixie vocal contest. 

In addition, she was a member of both the Ada High Mixed and Ada High Women’s Ensemble who achieved superior ratings at Little Dixie contest. Mann has been a member of the Ada High Choir for three years. She plans to attend ECU where she will minor in music and continue to enjoy singing in the choir.

This process involves learning the four very difficult choral works that were selected as this year’s audition pieces.  The first round auditions involved thousands of choral students in four different regions of the state. 

From these, approximately 800 are selected to advance to the second round held at UCO in Edmond.  After this difficult audition, approximately 150 students from across the state and all classes of schools are selected for the All-State Mixed Chorus or the Women’s Chorus.

Students then rehearse with a nationally reknowned clinician and perform at the Oklahoma Music Educators’ Convention held in Tulsa in January.
