Superintendent Anna Shepherd congratulates Adams Middle School students selected to perform in the All District Band.
Superintendent Shepherd comments, “Congratulations Logan, Lindsey, Laiken and Amelia! Floyd County Schools has some extremely talented kids in the arts and we are happy to see them participating in competitions and performing for different audiences. Challenging yourself with different experiences like this can increase confidence levels, hone performance skills and strengthen their talents. And to have 4 students selected from a school with a newly re-established music program speaks to the dedication of these students and their teacher, Steven Westfall.”
