I attended the Christmas choir concert at Riverview Junior High School in Murray on Dec. 18. It was delightful. The 200 seventh, eighh and ninth grade students put 110 percent into the program.

The specialty numbers were great. I take my hat off to John Madsen, teacher and director, who directed the program. It was easy to see that the students loved him and tried to please him with their dedication.The parents are lucky to have such an outstanding teacher. He is worth his weight in gold.

I would admonish all the parents to send him a Christmas card expressing your appreciation for his work.
