Dear Editor:

Recently I had occasion to attend the Kwantlen Polytechnic University 2015 Convocation to witness the five founders of the Langley Community Music School receive honorarydoctorates of Letters.

The late Leonard Woods, the late Peter Ewart, Marilyn Lamont, Dr. Keith Lamont and Linda Bickerton-Ross, were so honoured.

Without the determination of these five citizens, the Langley Community Music School would not exist today to produce quality musicians who have, and will continue to excel in their chosen music careers.

Google info@langleymusic.com or kpu.ca-2015honorarydoctorates for further bios on these amazing people.

We, as patrons of the wonderful concerts at the Rose Gellert Hall, are also benefactors of the school, as we enjoy concerts by the students and visiting artists alike. The Langley community is grateful for the dedication of  those five founders to persevere for the benefit of all and congratulate them upon receiving the honours.

S.S. Anderson, Langley
