Two seniors earn highest music honors

SUMMIT COUNTY – Recent Summit High School graduates Conor McGahey and Travis Shackelford were honored at the Summit High School band concert in May with the highest honors a musician can earn in high school.

McGahey won the Louis Armstrong Award for the best jazz musician, and Shackelford was awarded the John Philip Sousa Award for his prowess in the concert band.

The two were among 51 ninth- to 12th-graders who recently returned from a weeklong trip to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where they performed in an invitation-only concert aboard the USS Missouri.
