Letter to the Editor:
I was pleased to greet our returning Band students after their recent tour around Iowa. They had played in numerous schools and towns around the state and felt welcomed in all of the performing sites, but our director, Dr. Mike Eckerty, and students all agreed... South Tama County High School had shown exceptional hospitality during their visit.
STC students, faculty, boosters, administration, and audience members made Simpson kids feel at home! They reported that the audience was supportive and very appreciative. (They also reported that their dinner, a sure way to the heart of any student, was terrific!) I am an alumnus of both schools and just wanted to say thank you to STC for your warm hospitality.
