Carlos Castro Mendoza, a Senior at South Fort Myers, who has demonstrated his musical skills over and over again.

He has recently earned third chair Euphonium in the concert for All-County Band.

For Carlos, the recognition keeps coming.

He started playing violin in the orchestra in his freshman year. He was pretty successful and earned first chair, 2nd violin.

His sophomore year he became assistant Concertmaster and auditioned for Lee All-County Orchestra. There he earned 2nd violin, 4th chair. That same year he joined Marching Band and played the mellophone. In second Semester he joined Concert Band, playing French horn.

During his junior year, Carlos became the Concertmaster of the orchestra and Brass Captain of the marching band. He auditioned again for All-County Orchestra and made 1st violin, 3rd chair.

Now in his senior year, Carlos has grown as a musician. He is still the Concertmaster and is now the Drum Major or the Marching Band. Now he is waiting for All-County Orchestra to start again so he can keep representing his school in a positive way.  

“Don’t settle for mediocrity,”Carlos said.

And he says this to all of his fellow musicians. Bravo.
