Last weekend I was privileged to chaperone the Westwinds trip to Colorado. This amazing group of students was a pleasure to travel with and wonderful to listen to perform. They were courteous, polite, energetic, composed when they needed to be, adventurous, fun, and everything that represents the best in teen-agers. Not only were they wonderful traveling companions, they received a "Superior" rating from the judges at the Cavalcade of Music performance as well as the "Outstanding Performance" award for being considered the best in their class. It was an amazing experience. I want to thank each and every one of the students and Mr. Knappenberger for representing Westfield so well and for allowing me to be a part of it all.
