Favorite RHS music memory: “The great elegance, intelligence and worth of the music teachers present at that time that gave so much more than music – Sidney Gordon and J.D. Nichols and the fabulous events and learning experiences that they were able to afford us at the time. It was a very special and worthwhile place to be!”
