As my ninth year at Avon Lake High School comes to a close, I never cease to be amazed by the students. At the recent Memorial Day Parade, during a three day weekend, with beautiful weather, all but three of the band members were present for the parade and the ceremony. This is simply amazing.
Avon Lake students are special. They recognize the significance of a holiday such as Memorial Day and they choose to be a part of the events that help us remember and understand why people have fought and died for liberty and freedom. Our students are thoughtful and compassionate. They often see the "big picture" better than some adults I know.
Congratulations to the Class of 2014, and thank you for all that you have given to our band program. You will not be forgotten. We will learn from what you have taught us through your determination and leadership, and we will make you proud alums!
