Student makes moving speech to teacher

Letter to the Editor.

Here is a rave about the final band concert last week at Snoqualmie Middle School. Great show, in every way – musically and personally.

Landon Wilson brought many parents to tears with his thankful speech to Mr. Snavely. Hopefully, every one of us had a teacher who caught our attention and motivated us to go farther than we believed ourselves capable of. Mr. Snavely was that for Landon.

To witness the gratitude expressed by him was moving. Landon, I’m sorry if I am embarrassing you but many of us parents are watching you develop into a fascinating individual and secretly are rooting for you. Beautiful job being a human being and expressing kindness and gratitude to a great music teacher.
