Celebrating the life of Kevin Chase Elkins
Thank you for signing Kevin Chase Elkins's Guestbook
Dear Kim and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Kevin. He was a gifted teacher and musician who gave his students including my son a love of music. He made attending Middle School Band concerts actually enjoyable. He had such a positive attitude with his students and inspired them to do their best. This year one of his former students composed the music for the freshman play a Harvard University. It was Kevin who inspired him years ago to be creative and follow his dream. Praying for you and your family.
