Chandler High - (2018-2019) Congratulations to Ms. Lori Lyford, director of Chandler High's award-winning choirs, who was named the 2019 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) Music Educator of the Year. Joe Cerutti of NAfME flew in from Washington D.C. on December 20 to surprise Ms. Lyford and present the award personally. Lori Lyford is a sought-after coach, clinician, and chorus director, well known in barbershop circles for her passion and enthusiasm for singers of all ages. Her leadership with Chandler High choral groups is legendary. The school's Trebelmakers were critical in pulling off the surprise! Video: Surprising Lori Lyford!
