Senior Send-off: Arjun Joshi
The next graduating senior student that we want to highlight is Arjun Joshi. Arjun has been a part of our music community for 10 years, drumming and performing with bands. "Arjun has been one of my most consistent students over the years," says Music House drum teacher Joel Shipley. "He always has awesome and will give any material I give him his best shot." We wish Arjun well as he pursues his next chapter at K-State!
