Encouraging kids with words

On April 28, I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Edison Middle School Band Spring Concert. The concert was held at the Parkersburg South Auditorium. The building was immaculate – thank you South staff – and a source of real pride.

I would like to publicly acknowledge Gregory Myers for his dedication to music, and to the students who are so fortunate to have him as their director. The discipline and composure of each of the students (grades 6-8) as well as their musical ability is most refreshing. We enjoyed a wonderful evening of first class entertainment. I am proud of the great things happening in our school system and I am glad to accentuate the positive.

“Whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13.

All children need to be encouraged with these words.
