2023 Fine Arts Hall of Fame: Martin McDaniel
The RPS 205 Fine Arts Department is proud to announce our first 2023 Fine Arts Hall of Fame inductee: Martin McDaniel.
McDaniel has dedicated his life to music education. He is a former Eisenhower Middle School band teacher where he taught for 33 years, educating thousands of young musicians in Rockford. In his retirement, McDaniel volunteers as an RPS 205 Band Grandpa. He is still mentoring and teaching RPS 205 students and sharing his lifelong love for music.
We are incredibly honored and proud to induct Mr. McDaniel into the RPS 205 Fine Arts Hall of Fame on Friday, April 21, at the 2023 Fine Arts Hall of Fame induction and celebration.
