Anyone that purposely travels to Chicago during the winter is either crazy or is pursuing a dream. In the case of Catherine Du, Ryan Moy, Angela Wei, Alex Moy and Benjamin Cho, these Lime Kiln Middle School students, it's the latter.
These students traveled with the Howard County Middle School GT Orchestra to participate in the Midwest Clinic, the world's largest instrumental music education conference.
This conference draws about 17,000 attendees annually from all 50 states and from more than forty countries. Congratulations.
The Lime Kiln Middle School students of the week for the week ending Dec. 13 are Chelsea Baker, Ali Rajabi Abhari, Joshua Bradford, Anjola Bamisaiye, Camryn Bates, Samantha Hall, Paul Ciccone and Sydney Grant.
