Friday Night

Posted on Saturday, 15th September 2018 1:31 PM EDT

The Montgomery Township high school "Cougars" football team performed well last night against the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Raiders.

Montgomery scored 41 to Scotch Plains-Fanwood's 21.

No. I'm not into football. My daughter is captain of the high school marching band. We go to the home games to support her.

I used a modified version of an ACROS film simulation recipe by Ritchie Roesch. No post-processing noise reduction was used.

I like how Richie's recipe accentuates the light and dark areas of each image.

  1. Counseling / Guidance / National Merit Recognition - Commended Students by Montgomery Township High School (mtsd.k12.nj.us)

    Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

    Last night we attended our final Montgomery High School Bands Spring Concert. Our daughter and our youngest, Kiran, is graduating this summer and in the fall will start attending Oberlin College and Conservatory in Oberlin, Ohio. Oberlin, where she will be studying the classics, awarded her a scholarship.

WilliamsKiran started with the High School Band program in her freshman year, qualifying and playing with the marching band. She initially played alto saxophone but switched to baritone saxophone. She was very excited to be in the band. She had challenges making friends in high school, but the band provided her with a home. She worked hard and eventually became a band captain. She loved giving back, volunteering to play in any band program for which she qualified. She played in the Marching Band at football games, the Stage Band, the pit band at high school plays, the Wind Ensemble for concert performances, and marched with the band during Veteran’s Day observances at Montgomery Park.

The music, Unquiet Hours, was composed by David Biedenbender. The musicians dedicated their performance to mental health and Kiran was chosen to explain to the audience the challenges of mental health and the reason why the band decided to dedicate their performance to mental health.

We were pleasantly surprised to learn that our daughter, Kiran, was one of them.We are so proud of her and what she has accomplished for herself.
