As a result, students have par- ticipated in joint music and P.E. programs for parents and the student body. A clog- ging team, the ‘Bucking Buc- caneers,’’ has developed from the P.E. program and has been sponsored by former student teacher Suzie Holtzclaw. With renewed interest in music, the students have presented the musicals “Cinderella’’ and “Old Mac- Donald.”” Two others, ‘How the West was Really Won” and “Let George do it,” will be presented this year. Nanney, a past teacher of the year and principal of the ear, was also the Terry San- ord Award nominee fifteen years ago while serving as guidance counselor and assis- tant principal at the junior high school. As this year’s nominee, he is justly recognized as an educator who continues to search for the creative and innovative methods in teaching and lear- ning.
