Jessica Ronat, daughter of Steve and Michelle Littlehale Ronat of Pocahontas and granddaughter of Ken and Connie Kleeman of Hoyleton and Duke and Martha Ronat of Greenville, has been chosen as one of the four finalists in the Stand and Be Heard Anthem singing contest sponsored by FMC Agricultural Solutions.
Ronat graduated in May from Greenville High School. She was very active in the school’s music program as well as the local 4H chapter.
WGEL spoke with Jessica about the Stand and Be Heard Anthem contest.
“It’s a scholarship contest through FMC Crops,” she told us. “You submit a video of you singing the National Anthem and rack up as many votes as you can. The top twenty vote-getters went to a panel of judges. Those four judges chose the top four contestants.
“Those top four got to go to Nashville and record in the House of Blues and were guaranteed a $5,000 scholarship. The voting opens up again on the 28th of this month [August] and the public will choose the number one vote-getter online.”
The performer with the most votes from the online poll will win a $10,000 college scholarship.

Jessica Ronat is attending Indiana Wesleyan University and is majoring in Music Therapy.
