Lake Highlands All-State Choir Members

Reid Negron and Katherine Pottkotter


For the past seven to eight months, students in the choir program have been preparing for the All-Region and All-State process. In 2024, Lake Highlands had two choir members, Reid Negron, 11, and Katherine Pottkotter, 10, who placed in All-State. 

For those who don’t know what All-Region is, it’s kind of like “The Voice” but without the turning chairs. Students “compete” for spots in the Texas All-State choir individually and anonymously in front of judges. The students who made it into All-State go down to San Antonio for about three days and practice all day to perform in front of 60,000 people.

  Negron placed third chair in the Texas All-State Mixed Choir. Negron mentioned the best advice he was given was from his voice teacher, Amy Pottkotter. She had told him to not get into his head and to trust that he was prepared. Negron hopes to take that advice in the future.

Pottkotter placed first chair in the Texas All-State Mixed Choir. 


“I enjoyed competing against other very talented students from around the state alongside my classmates,” Pottkotter said.


 Although she placed high, something she wished she had done was keep a better attitude. 

Both Negron and Pottkotter have worked hard and have ended up with an amazing result, and will get the chance to perform in front of thousands on February 10.
