I never had a kid in band, but I have always been impressed with how hard the kids worked to achieve success, and how great a teacher Mr. Med is. Thank you for all you do, not only for the kids, but for our entire community. Congratulations.

Our community owes a lot to Mr. Medworth and his motivation and great teaching for this success! Most importantly, the kids that worked all summer long for this achievement. I was a member of NMK and it is the biggest memory I miss.
