“Logan and Robert have proven themselves as two very distinguished individuals with natural musical talent and exceptional work ethic, respectively,” said Dr. Roberta Gerold, Superintendent of MCCSD. “I am proud to celebrate Logan and Robert, as well as their teachers, Dr. Harold Goldstein and Mr. Brian Hough, on this well-earned recognition and extraordinary opportunity. We wish these two the best of luck on their upcoming performances.”
