Savannah Albertson, the daughter of Tiffany and Tim Albertson was nominated in the area of general music by music teacher Joan Gardner. Gardner said “Savannah has been a leader in music class throughout her years at Huntington Catholic. She often sings in the choir for school masses and has been a part of the Diocese-wide Pueri Cantores Choir all three years. She is always willing to answer questions in class and participate in class discussions.”
