Gretchen Perkins was hired this year as the new Upper School fine arts assistant, where she will be assisting with tasks such as planning the upcoming choir tour, helping to handle money, and accompanying the choir class with her piano expertise.

Perkins has been a director of two separate children’s choirs over the course of twenty years in Minneapolis and Stillwater, where she lives, and has also helped her son, a high school junior, and his drama department with rehearsals and line memorization. She had no connection to Minnehaha Academy when her friend told her about the available position.

Perkins is looking forward to be joining choir students on their tour to Sweden this year, the homeland ofher ancestors, and to interact with all fine arts students.
