Students were more than thrilled to have their former teacher join their celebration. One of the highlights of the dinner in Lakalzap was the Jazz Band, who were accompanied by Mr. Yang and assisted by Mr. Johnson. It was a bitter sweet moment for guests, knowing that this would be one of the last times they would hear this particular group of musicians play together.
