It is with great pleasure and joy that we acknowledge Chase as the March Artist of the Month for his outstanding contributions in the Band and Jazz Band program. Chase has been a member of the band program for the past three years and has demonstrated his awesomeness time and time again through his wonderful alto saxophone playing.  This past year, Chase has won several solos and has consistently delivered a very musical performance.  In addition, to his concert band playing, Chase took the leap this year and joined jazz band.  It has been a great pleasure to watch him fall in love with this new genre of music and new style of playing. 

For those of you who do not know Chase, he is an intelligent young man who consistently brightens every room he enters.  He has a wonderfully infections smile that automatically makes those around him feel welcome and valued.  In addition to his accomplishments in the band program you can catch Chase as an integral part of the Dance Program here at Westwood where he consistently continues to shine.

Outside of school, Chase has been an active member of the Headingley community where has volunteered for numerous events.  Chase hopes to wrap up his studies next year at Westwood and hopes to head off to medical school where he plans to be a dermatologist.

Let us all take a moment to celebrate Chase and all of his fantastic accomplishments.
