CHS Principal David Snider nominated Wright for the award. He joined Edward Jones Financial Advisor: Jason Rehg to present the award to Wright during an afternoon band rehearsal in the auditorium.
Rehg sponsors the award each month — it was previously known as the Teacher of the Month program. The name was changed to reflect thedesire to honor all professional staff — in addition to teachers.
Mr. Wright was chosen for his dedication to the excellence of Collinsville High School Bands, including the successful Carnegie Hall performance and New York City band trip earlier this year.
