Marion County R-II School District band and chorus teacher Todd Richman was awarded the October WGEM Golden Apple Award.
Richman has taught for more than three decades, but says his students’ excitement keeps him young and energized.
“It isn’t all about having fun, but there’s nothing wrong with having fun while you are learning,” Richman said. “So, if you can put the two together it’s a good combination.”
Tonight on WGEM News at Six, Richman’s students share how he has used that combination to revive the school’s musical program in just a few years time.
