We are pleased to announce that our David Douglas High School music teacher and David Douglas District music coordinator, Jennifer Brooks, has been selected by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Music Committee to receive a Section award representing Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming!
Brooks began teaching in the music department at David Douglas High School in 1998. Since then, she has shaped our music program immensely and inspired many hundreds of students along the way through her creative talents and strong leadership. Over the years, Brooks has held (and continues to hold) many extra music-related positions, such as Head Band Director, Orchestra Director, Musical Director: Vocal and Orchestra, and Stage/Jazz Band Director.
Over 20,000 high schools are represented in the NFHS membership, including approximately 89 percent of the total senior high schools in the United States. In terms of the NFHS music committee, the committee monitors music activities across the United States, developing and assisting in the production of NFHS products and services for the music community.
This award is a huge honor, and the David Douglas School District is so proud to have Jennifer as a part of our staff. Her dedication and immeasurable impact does not go unnoticed – Congrats Jennifer Brooks!
