Thomas Pagan is an eighth grade trumpet player from Hobart. He attends Thomas A. Edison Junior-Senior High School. Outside of playing solos in his school’s jazz band, Thomas spends his time listening to Miles Davis and reading his favorite book “Lockwood and Co.” Thomas recently attended a town forum where he had the opportunity to introduce Congressman Pete Visclosky. Thomas is one of several generations in his family to play the trumpet.  In the past, Thomas has overcome stage fright by pushing himself to play solos.  Keep up the great work Thomas!    ~Katie Misiak, wind instructor~
