Musicians, Safety Patrols Receive Awards

McLean Woman's Club honors middle- and elementary-school students

 

The musicianship of four students from Cooper and Longfellow middle schools was recognized by the Woman’s Club of McLean at a ceremony on Tuesday, May 3, where the students also performed on their instruments. Hannah Yo and Beth Johnston, of Cooper Middle School, played selections from Telemann’s G Major Viola Concerto and Goedicke’s Concert Etude on the viola and trumpet, respectively. Jane Lee and Alyssa Kim, of Longfellow Middle School, played the flute and violin parts from Gordeli’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra, Opus 8, and Bach’s Violin Concerto in A Minor, respectively. The four students each received an award of $100.00 from the Woman’s Club.

 

Ten students at Chesterbrook, Churchill Road, Franklin Sherman, Kent Gardens and Spring Hill elementary schools received awards for their significant contributions as safety patrol members. The honorees were: William Davis and Rebecca Hatepaa, of Chesterbrook Elementary; Andrew Zhao and Isabelle Scott, of Churchill Road Elementary; Jack Forde and Emma Saunders, of Franklin Sherman Elementary; Yanni Aknine and Sofia Najjar, of Kent Gardens Elementary; and Jack Prewett and William Trosch of Spring Hill Elementary. In addition to the trophy each student received, the safety patrol program at each school has received an $80.00 donation from the Woman’s Club for program equipment.

 

The students’ parents and the school principals, music directors and patrol sponsors attended the ceremony, as did Officer Tom Harrington, school resource officer of the Fairfax County Police Department. The award ceremony is an annual event of the Woman’s Club of McLean.
