Last night was Samantha's last band concert of the year which was very enjoyable. It is fun to hear the kids getting better. Best of all however was that Samantha recieved 2 certificates of achievement! The 40 kids in her band class all voted for 3 categories, Most Improved, Most Inspirational, and Most Valuable Player. 4 were chosen for most improved, Samantha was chosen as one of 3 who were "Most Inspirational" and Samantha and her friend Kaylee were voted "Most Valuable Player"!!! Her band teacher mentioned that this was the first time 2 7th graders were chosen as most valuable player, as the band consists of 6-8th graders. We are very proud of her, especially since this accolade comes from her peers! Way to go Samantha!
