Yesterday morning students at BFA Fairfax were treated to the musical and comedic talents of Troy Millette (Class of 2012). Currently, Troy is a senior at St. Michael’s College where he is majoring in English, while working at Minor’s store and pursuing a music career.
Troy shared an important message with our students about being passionate about your dreams, the need to persevere, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to reach your goals. In between songs, he reminded students about the importance of surrounding yourself with positive people and to take advantage of the opportunities that they have at their school and in their community.
We all appreciated starting our morning with wonderful songs and laughter. Troy is a great representative of our school and the Fairfax community. Thank you to him for sharing his talents and demonstrating to our students the importance of giving back.
