Hundreds of local students and teachers from Waterford were honored for their hard work in the classroom with a national award for music.

The Waterford Kettering Choir has been recognized as one one of the top music programs in the entire country.

The school's music program was recently given the Support Music Merit Award - which is only given to about 1% of U.S. schools each year.

To the staff it's no surprise that they've been rewarded for their hard work. They say there are many benefits for the kids beyond learning music.
