Nearly two-dozen contestants took to the stage inside Wisdom Gym Saturday evening when Tarleton State University’s Residential Living & Learning staff hosted the annual Transition Week Talent Show. Several hundred students attended the event that featured vocalists, a magician and another student who could jump over his own leg. Three winners were selected by a panel of judges to conclude the Talent Show, with each receiving Texan Bucks as prizes.

  1. Hi I was in the very first talent show I think it started in the 80’s. I won every talent show I was moved from in front of the student building to the new bulig art building dedicated on my birth day December 6. My teach was prof emeritus Dr Mary Jane Mingus. On my request to come back special performances after I graduate many years after as alumni. There was a film that disappeared of the event. Reel to reel. Danced to torch by the jacksons.
