My first teaching position was Band and Choir Director at Lanesboro in 1966 & 1967.
My first "favorite student" was Rich Hall. Such a talented young man with such an
incredibly positive attitude. I'll always remember Rich fondly.
We are so sorry for your loss of Rich. He was such a kind guy when I knew him in school and band. RIP sweet man.
