Letter to the editor: Wrapping up a remarkable career

On May 23, we had the pleasure of attending the alumni and friends’ tribute to Bob Drafall, who is retiring this year after 19 years as the State College Area High School choral director.

It was amazing to learn about the impact he has had on his students.

Many students shared personal stories about Drafall’s significant and positive influence on their lives. Some now enjoy careers as professional musicians and many others have become choir directors and music teachers.

“Dra” not only nurtures highly talented students but reaches out to all students who have a desire to make and enjoy music regardless of their talent. He treats all with kindness, care and encouragement.

What a remarkable teacher!
