But while he succeeds in his many other extracurriculars and has even held a job at McDonald’s for the past two years, McCune said that music is “first and foremost.” He has an impressive musical resume and was awarded the Arion Soloist Award and National School Choral Award as a junior.

“I was a substitute member of the Alton Municipal Band last summer,” he added. “I'm currently serving as the student director for an extra band that I've started at the school, and we'll be performing at the spring concert in May.”

McCune’s hard work has paid off, as he plans to attend the Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona in the fall. He will pursue a degree in music performance on the flute.

Congratulations to Josh for this recognition by Civic Memorial High School and the DD Homes Network!
