Dear Editor:

Congratulations to Brennon Cavanagh on his acceptance into the U.S. Army Band and the four-year full-ride college scholarship he is receiving. (Mirror-Democrat and Times-Journal, May 6-7.)

The photo of this young man beaming with pride and happiness reminds us all that truly good things happen in our gorgeous little county all the time.

And smiles also to his instructor, Ms. Bressler, who helped guide Brennon since fifth grade.

You both make us proud.

Val Gunnarsson
