Thank You from Don Gerheart
As many of you know last week’s All-State was a very emotional one for me. When you serve an organization for 36 years you meet a lot of wonderful music educators and make hundreds upon hundreds of friends. I want to take this time to thank everyone for the standing ovations and the many kind words and hugs that you gave me. I also want to thank those that presented me with gifts and the surprise party Friday evening at the Sheraton Uptown. I truly had no idea of the party until I walked into the room. I have thoroughly enjoyed serving NMMEA for 36 years and I encourage more of you to do the same at least for a few years. I wish you all well and it has been my pleasure to meet so many wonderful people.
