Stone, Middaugh, Smith, Orr
Congratulations to Margaret Middaugh, Sarah Orr, Isabella Smith and Dawson Stone on a job well done at the NYSSMA Senior High Area All State Festival at SUNY Fredonia November 19th & 20th.  The four musicians earned a top spot in their respective orchestra and band ensembles to earn an invitation to attend the prestigious festival.  After rehearsing Friday afternoon and evening, then again all day Saturday, they put on a well-received concert on Saturday afternoon.  "These students did an outstanding job and were proud to represent Akron's Music Department," commented Mrs. Courtney Sanville, music director at Akron Schools.
