First to be recognized was Choir Director Ms. Andrea Lynch.  Due to personal reason Ms. Lynch  did not have the time to create a Spring program. The Students still thanked her for work she had done with in past years. Then the Senior Members of the Concert Band were called forward and introduce to the Audience. They then thanked Director McCann for his talent, support, education and patients in showing them how to become the Students, Musicians, and Citizens the are today. Both Ms.Lynch and Mr.McCann were given present for their hard work.
