The 10th annual Stars In Our Eyes talent show, held Jan. 25, 2013 at La Jolla High School’s Parker Auditorium, showcased students’ abilities and raised money for college scholarships. Presented by the Rotary Club of La Jolla, the show featured 17 different acts, including singing, dancing and acting, as well as a student art exhibit. More than 125 students from La Jolla High School, The Bishop’s School, La Jolla Country Day School and Preuss School at UCSD performed, helped set up the show, worked backstage or contributed a piece of art. “We give around $150,000 annually in scholarships to college-bound graduates of the four La Jolla high schools,” said Kate Adams, Rotary Club president.
