December 13, 2010

Good morning, and what a great day it is outside! The sun is shining, but schools are closed throughout the Vantage district. I appreciate living so close to Vantage on days such as this one.

Vantage inducted 26 students into the National Technical Honor Society last Monday evening. Several instructors and parents were in the audience to witness their students' induction. All enjoyed a great dinner and program, led by Mr. Bob Vennekotter, Director. Several parents expressed their pride and appreciation for the personal focus which was put on the ceremony as the audience heard the reasons why teachers nominated each of these outstanding students for the National Technical Honor Society distinction. Congratulations to all of these students for this tremendous accomplishment. Vantage continues to induct at least 20 students annually who exemplify the traits of knowledge, skill, honesty, service, responsibility, citizenship, and leadership.

I can't close my blog today until I note what a wonderful concert I attended at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Sunday night. Kenny G was truly amazing to listen to, and he entertained the audience with much humor throughout the show. The snowstorm outside made it even cozier to enjoy such terrific music.
