What a talented young man. Let's hope he also wins the Community Craftsman Award and the $5,000 grant. A young man with this much tell it should be rewarded. This is just another shining example of the multitude of talent that we have in Trenton. Congratulations to Andrew. Wish you all the best and good luck with your future endeavors.
