Outstanding Music Educator Award
Connie (Maltby) Marzen was named outstanding music educator in the northeast district of the Kansas Music Educators Association. “She’s great,” said former student Thomas Martin who studied voice at University of Missouri. “She’s the first person who got me into choir. If not for her, I probably wouldn't have done it. I hope to have a music career, maybe opera.” (The Leaven)
