Lane M. Powell, Director of Bands for Fillmore Central Schools, was elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Minnesota State High School League and the Minnesota Music Educator's Association. The official title of MMEA Representative will allow Mr. Powell to act as a liason between the high school league and the music association throughout the next several years.

He was nominated by current music educators in the state and was elected via ballot in May of this year.

His term will begin on Monday, July 11, with a new board member orientation for the MSHSL north of Minneapolis. There will also be a three-day training session at a resort north of St. Cloud in early August. Mr. Powell will then attend board meetings for both the high school league and the music association throughout the year.

This position is unique in that it facilitates discussions between the league and music association about the relevance of music in Minnesota High Schools. It also helps to schedule and maintain music contests and festivals, discuss trends in the field, and maintain a connection between music and other school activities.
