Music Educator Dunham Wins Achievement Award
Tom Dunham, band director for the Jackson Hole Middle and High Schools, was the recipient of the Grand Teton Music Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Music Education on Friday, March 9, in Jackson. In a ceremony held on stage at the Center for the Arts just after the intermission of the Festival’s Brass Quintet concert, Music Director Donald Runnicles presented Dunham with a commemorative plaque honoring his achievements.
Dunham has played an integral role in the development and success of the Festival’s music education programs, and has grown the local school band program over the past few years, from five students in 1999 to 105 students today.
