Golden Apple: William Simpson
Our Golden Apple Award Winner this week comes from the Autauga County School System. In his 27th year of teaching, Marbury High School Band Director William Simpson relishes his unique opportunity to teach his students for many years more than the average teacher. The driving force behind why Simpson continues to teach music education after so many years.
“Because young people do it and I think any activity a young person is involved in is very important, ” says Simpson. “I get to see them graduate high school and realize there years in the band made a positive impact on their lives.”
