This year our very own Corps Director Aaron Zeilinger was notified that he was not only nominated, but selected for Yamaha’s 40 under 40 out of the 450 nominations.

In his own words “I am so incredibly humbled that so many people jumped in and nominated me. As many of you know I get super awkward at this kind of recognition. I am still wrapping my head around it as I am truly stunned so many of my students and colleagues nominated me.

Thank you to everyone that nominated me. I will cherish this award dearly as I pursue excellence  in teaching, leadership and fostering growth among the students I have the privilege of working with.”
