Floresville High School junior Alyssa Farias was recognized during the Floresville Independent School Disrict board of trustees meeting May 21 for being selected to an All-State music organization. This honor is the most prestigious achievement a high school music student can attain in Texas.

Being selected for an All-State ensemble is quite an impressive achievement as there were more than 60,000 students from across the state who began the audition process for these coveted positions. Only 3 percent of these students actually accomplish the honor.

After successfully completing the selection process, they spent three days in rehearsal with a nationally known conductor, culminating in a concert for the membership of the Texas Music Educators Association at the annual clinic/convention on Feb. 16. Their names are available to the music departments of colleges and universities throughout several states where scholarship opportunities will be open to them.

Working with other students of like talent was also a reward in itself.
