Eight years ago, I graduated from Hilliard Davidson High School. When I left, I knew that I was one of a lucky few who was privileged to know and love Mrs. Carole Bundy, our choir teacher retiring at the end of this school year.

It's hard to explain why the years spent in that choir room were special, but if you ask any of her former students, they'll say it was close to magical as real life can get.

We always knew that we were had one of the good ones, but she was more than a great music director. She gave every kid a chance, whether in the choir or not. She was our biggest advocate and loudest cheerleader. I will always admire her for being in our corner.

But the most remarkable thing Mrs. Bundy did in her years at Hilliard was give thousands of kids the gift of music. It is a special thing, to have such an impact, to change so many people's lives for the better.

I just wish that some day my kids will be lucky enough to have a music teacher like her. Simply put, those of us who were lucky enough to be a part of Mrs. Bundy's world are better people because of it. She gave us her time, her talent and her love.

From all of us who carry the love of music thanks to her, congratulations to Mrs. Bundy on an amazing career.
