October 2021 Music Student of the Month – Paxton White

A junior at Orcas high school, Paxton packs a busy daily schedule that starts with zero-hour band class and ends with after-school sports, often with away games that end with a late ferry ride home.  With all he has going on, he still brings enthusiasm to the band with his tuba playing!  We love his can-do attitude.  Congratulations on being October’s Music Student of the Month!

The Music Student of the Month series recognizes Orcas Island Public School musicians who work hard at their musical skills and whose love of music is an inspiration to their fellow student musicians.  Thank you so much to the Orcas Island businesses who are sponsoring this monthly series throughout the 2021-22 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
