Five ones to Watch In 2016: Sophia Formella

Jul 30, 2015 09:33AM ● Published by Dia

Everyone knows that Dragons go far. Whether it’s in drama or biology, swimming or history, Carroll students excel in their chosen path. These five incoming seniors have exhibited unmatched potential in achieving their aspirations, showing intelligence, passion and confidence. No one knows where they’ll end up, but one thing is certain: These five students are ones to watch. 

Sophia Formella

Texas All-State Women’s Choir

ABOUT SOPHIA: Sophia Formella loves singing, acting in musicals, traveling the world and meeting new people, which is why singing in the choir is perfect for her. Formella knew she loved it when she tried out for a school musical at age eight, and the rest is history.

Every year since freshman year, Formella has gone to the state Solo and Ensemble competition and received superior rankings. As a junior, she was the only CSHS student to be selected to participate in the Texas All-State Women’s Choir. She’s also been in the Texas All-Region Choir since 7th grade. Recently, she went on a school choir trip to Italy where she performed in Rome, Venice, and Florence.

Formella is a member of NHS and the National Spanish Honors Society in addition to being a National Hispanic Merit Scholar. In her free time, she loves being a part of the Best Buddies Chapter of CSHS.

FAVORITE CLASS: “AP English,” Formella says. “This class encourages out-of-the-box thinking and we get to read really cool books, including my favorite, The Great Gatsby.”

WHAT OTHERS SAY: “Sophia has always
had a talent for singing. What makes Sophia outstanding is that she doesn’t rest on her natural ability, but instead, works extremely hard to elevate her musicianship,” Carroll Choir Director Marla Ringel says. “It’s been my pleasure to work with her.”
