  • Special Guest. Dr. Larry Livingston, a distinguished conductor, educator, and a highly respected motivational speaker addressed a full house of MVHS Music students in the auditorium on September 29. His powerful words resonated with the students as he discussed the importance of keeping music a part of their lives. That evening he was presented the Tri-M Lifetime Honorary Member Award at the annual Tri-M Music Honor Society Induction Ceremony. During his time at MVHS, some music ensembles had the privilege of working with Dr. Livingston during their class periods and he also spent time with the MVHS music faculty.
