Two Utah State University faculty members have been elected to leadership positions in the Utah Music Educators Association (UMEA), the largest organization of public and private music educators in the state.
Gregory Wheeler has been elected president, and Leslie Timmons has been elected vice president for elementary music education for the next two years.
"I’m very proud of Greg and Leslie for representing the Caine College of the Arts and Utah State University in such an outstanding way," said Craig Jessop, dean of the Caine College of the Arts, in a press release.
Wheeler, assistant professor of multiple woodwinds in the Department of Music, has taught for more than 30 years, and was recognized as teacher of the year in the Cache School District three times.
Timmons is an associate professor of flute and music education as well as a founding member of the faculty woodwind quintet Logan Canyon Winds. In 1998 she was chosen by UMEA as Utah’s Outstanding Music Educator.
