Congratulations to the people who gave the Golden Apple award to music teacher Kevin Van Ess. He is without a doubt an inspiration to all the young people he comes in contact with. I have watched first-hand the love for his music at parties and other events where he and his band Talk Of The Town have performed, and I know that his enthusiasm and exuberance are transferred to his students. Kevin's ability to make everyone around him feel good and have a good time through his music is incredible.
This award is well-deserved.
