During an impromptu assembly in the EHS commons on November 18, EHS Principal Erin Nichols presented vocal music teacher Katie Banks-Todd with a video message from country music legend Reba McEntire. In the personalized message, McEntire thanked Banks-Todd for her contributions to the arts in her community.
"We just love hearing about people like you," McEntire said. "In fact, our friends at One Country love it so much, they're going to give you a check for $10,000!"
McEntire also invited Banks-Todd to her concert in Wichita the following night. Banks-Todd says that the money will be used to benefit current and future arts students at EHS.
