Dear DHS Music Boosters Community:
First, the Board would like to say "thank you" to all the families who donated to the special fund for Mr. Everts' gift. You may be wondering why we did not present the gift to him at Monday night's performance. Mr. Everts was sensitive about receiving a gift during the event because he did not want to take away anything from the student's performance and recognition. We had a tough time debating on what to do but, in the end, we respected his wish and presented the gifts to him in the band room in front of the students and a few parents who happened to make their way into the band room after the concert.
On the bright side, we were able to raise $800 for Mr. Everts so we gave him a $300 gift card to Ruth Chris Steak House, a $500 check for him to spend as he and Mrs. Everts see fit and a Thank You plaque with the message:
Thank you Paul Everts for your immense contribution to the Dublin High School Music Program by taking it from a humble beginning to an award-winning program consisting of not just musical and artistic enrichment, but also life skills development.
"Early is on time; on time is late; late is rude..." words to live by!
