South Windsor Student Uses Talent to Help Others

    Meghan M., a 15-year-old sophomore at South Windsor High School, began giving music lessons almost three years ago so she could save money to buy a new flute.  Now that she has paid for the flute, she has decided to contribute $2 to Horns For Kids for every lesson she gives to new students.  Horns For Kids, a charitable organization that awards new and gently-used musical instruments to Connecticut schools, received a check from Meghan for $24, along with a letter explaining her idea.  Meghan found the Horns For Kids website on her own, and decided she would like to help give other students the opportunity to play a musical instrument.
    Meghan has studied piano for 9 years, and flute for 6 years.  At school, she is a member of the Wind Ensemble, Marching Band and Sound Factory (the school’s chorus).  She is member of her church flute choir, and performs monthly at an assisted living facility in her town.  Somehow Meghan finds time each week to teach both piano and flute lessons.  And she is teaching us all the importance of using our talents to help others.  Thank you, Meghan!
