With all the fantastic alumni that the band has, we would like to periodically feature our alumni, where they are today, and their successes. Here is an alumni feature.

Audrey (Abel) Martin – Class of 2012 – Alto Saxophone

High School Accomplishments
I graduated 10th in my class and received a full tuition scholarship to Freed-Hardeman University. I was a member of SADD and performed with the jazz band.

Where are you now located?
Atoka, TN

Current Life
I teach 7th grade Social Studies in Lakeland, TN.

What have you done since high school?
I graduated from Freed-Hardeman University with majors in History and Secondary Education and a minor in Spanish. I'm in my 3rd year of teaching middle school history.

Are there any accomplishments you would like to share?
In college, I played in a small ensemble for our university's annual "Makin' Music" event. Last year, Lakeland Middle Prep's band asked me (and other teachers and friends) to perform with them in their end-of-year concert. I recently played saxophone with 3 students in our middle school talent show. It was a blast! I also got married this summer!

How did band influence your life?
It taught me discipline and responsibility. It gave a place to belong and a way to keep myself busy. I made many friends and countless memories. Currently, it gives me a way to connect with several of my students who are in middle school band or orchestra. They appreciate having a teacher who gets what it means to be a "band geek."

Is there anything you would like to say to current band members?
Stick with it! The hours you spend will teach you time management and responsibility. You'll make friends that could last a lifetime and develop teamwork and cooperation skills. Also, scholarships are always nice if you decide to play in college as well.
