Congratulations to all of our students that competed. While bringing home the trophies is always fun, to me placing is not the important aspect. The fact that the student is out there giving it their best, that is important to me. The fact that judges come up to me and compliment our students for how they carry themselves, that is important to me. To see our students endeavor and respect others is important to me.
Winning is fun, but there are more important things. Congratulations to all!
