Marion-Grant County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Nov. 27.
Marion Community Schools congratulates McCulloch Junior High School choir teacher Christina Huff on being named the Indiana Music Education Association’s Junior High Teacher of the Year.
IMEA gives this award each year to one educator at the elementary, middle school / junior high, high school, and college levels. The award signifies these educators have exemplified outstanding achievement in the field of music education, IMEA said.
Mrs. Huff will be honored at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Embassy Theater in Fort Wayne, at the start of the All-State Elementary and Middle School Honor Choir concert. Three Marion Community Schools students will be performing with the Honor Choir: Caleb Huff and Michelle Rasor, both sixth-graders at Justice Intermediate School, and Christian Vermilion, an eighth-grader at McCulloch Junior High School.
The impact that Mrs. Huff has had on McCulloch can be clearly seen in a variety of ways, from the number of students involved and engaged in the school’s choir program (more than 135 students this year); to the number of students selected for the Honor Choir (for five years in a row now) and the annual Circle the State with Song festival; to the school’s music program being recognized as one of the best in the state, having earned the Indiana State School Music Association’s Junior High / Middle School / Elementary Total Department All Music Award four years in a row — the only school in the state to do so!
Marion Community Schools is so proud of Mrs. Huff, and we are grateful to her for her work to provide Marion students excellent opportunities throughout the year!
There are several opportunities coming up to enjoy the talents of McCulloch Junior High School’s award-winning musicians, at our holiday concerts:
7th grade choir: 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10, in the MJHS auditorium
8th grade choir: 6 p.m.Tuesday, Dec. 11, in the MJHS auditorium
7th/8th grade band: 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, in the MJHS gym
We hope to see you there to support these young performers!
