√ CHEERS to all of the fine arts patrons who donated money to the Karsten Courtney education fund. The bands and choirs took up a freewill donation at their concert on May 18. The show choirs did a freewill offering at Spectravaganza on May 20. A total of $1,720.53 was donated. What a blessing it is to work in a community that is so generous to those in need. If anyone did not get a chance to donate and still want to — the folks at Sheets and Childs would be happy to assist you.
— Mark Cheshier, band director, Aaron Childress, choir director, and Missy Baughman, fine arts business manager
