Honored In 2016
Another "Great" in the JHS music world is Mr. Larry Cigainero. Larry spent 33 years in JISD, first as a music teacher before taking the lead as JHS Choir Director where he led his choir to a lengthy run of awards and honors and established a tradition of excellence for the program. Many of his former students remain in touch with "Mr. C." and they joined together to name him an Influential Indian. Former choir student, Brandy Peacock Traylor, announced the award on behalf of a large number of choir students during the Evening With Our Stars annual event in 2016.
