On January 3, Holt’s band teacher, Jacob England, received the Outstanding Young Educator Award from the Missouri Music Educators Association. This award is a huge deal, as there were many amazing nominees that were nominated from across the state. Every year, one educator is chosen for this prestigious award.

This award is not an easy one to get as a band director. One has to be amazing and truly be invested and passionate about his job to even be considered for this award. However, his students think think that he is very well deserving of it.

“He loves what he does and that’s what makes him so good about it. He is always willing to stay after and help and he is an amazing teacher,” said Grace Markel (‘20).

This is only England’s third year working at Holt High School, but he has already done amazing things with the band program. Here at Holt he directs the Holt Concert Band and assists with the Holt Marching Band. He also teaches at the middle school and directs the Wentzville Middle Jazz Band.

England’s himself is also a Holt Graduate, as he graduated in 2010. He also earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Truman State University. Both of these experiences have helped him become the hard worker that he is today.
If students want to help celebrate this award, he will be given it at the 81st annual MMEA Conference in Osage Beach, Missouri. This is held from January 23-26.
