Many kudos and hearty congratulations to Second's own organist-choirmaster, Dr. Stanley Workman, on receiving the very first Mary Smalley Outstanding Arts Educator Award from the Portsmouth Area Arts Council on Sat, June 3, 2017.  

And what fun we had celebrating Stan's 25th anniversary at Second in August 2017 with a surprise party (that actually was a surprise!) and a special Sunday morning worship service featuring some of his former students and colleagues.
