VANGUARD BANQUETBrady's LandingMay 22, 2015The evening of May 22nd was a special one for the Vanguard Academy at Burbank Middle School. It was the evening of the 1st Annual Vanguard Banquet, a special time set aside to recognize and honor the achievements of our Vanguard students. The banquet was held at Brady's Landing at Cypress St, a historic landmark in Houston and a perfect setting to showcase the projects our students created during the year. They were on exhibit as you walked in to the salon.
Administrators, teachers, parents, and students began to arrive at 5:30 pm and proceeded to be seated in a salon that had been especially decorated in green, gold, and black, our school's colors. After our coordinator Mrs. Frances Cortina welcomed all the guests, she invited them to enjoy their dinner accompanied by the music of our Band Director, Mr. Wilford Glenn. He regaled everyone present with several of his own compositions as well as presenting three soloists from Burbank's Concert Band:
Juan Alvarado - Trumpet Solo
Daniella Portice - Clarinet Solo
Martha Lemus - Clarinet SoloAfter the awards were given, all that was left was to enjoy the dance, set to the music of our very own DJ, Mr. Jared Mosley. It was a wonderful evening, full of wonderful memories we're sure to remember for a long time to come.
