John Seth is without a doubt a "Local Talent". The Teacher of the Year Award for Flagler Palm Coast High School, District Finalist honor and more than a decade long streak of "Superiors" for the FPC Band are more than enough to qualify Mr. Seth as a local talent, but they are the least of the reasons he more than deserves any honors bestowed upon him.
There is no way to retell every story of Mr. Seth's impact on the youth of Flagler County. Unlike the performances by the various incarnations of the FPC Band that he has directed, the most important of his deeds happen in relative privacy, without fanfare or applause. Mr. Seth is more than a gifted musician and teacher and his efforts are much more than should be expected of him. Although he seems to have a playful nature, he simultaneously instills unrivalled work ethic in his pupils and leads by example. Mr. Seth is adept at discovering hidden talent and helping it flourish. He is demanding when he needs to be, caring and compassionate when that is what is needed and always keeping the best interests of his students first and foremost.
Mr. Seth has built a band program that has brought prestige and honor to FPC and all of Flagler County and for those reasons he is most certainly a local talent. He has prepared and guided so many students, helping them find the talent and determination within themselves and for that he deserves a heartfelt "THANK YOU MR. SETH!"
