Winner for the School Salute Promotion


Acknowledging music teachers and their hard-working programs

School Salute 3


Fulton Homes and 94.5 KOOL-FM continue to honor America with the Fulton Homes School Salute promotion, and today announced the third winner for the 2021-2022 school year.

"What these music teachers are doing for their students amongst a pandemic is truly inspiring," said Fulton Homes CEO Doug Fulton. "Musical education can catapult a child's learning to new heights."

The third winner of the 2021-2022 school year is Aaron Vogel from Mountain Ridge High School. He is currently in his 20th year of teaching and serves as the Director of Bands at Mountain Ridge High School in Glendale, Arizona. Aaron fell in love with the tuba at a young age and continued to play the tuba and the drums in his school band and in the local drum and bugle corps.

Prior to his appointment at Mountain Ridge, Mr. Vogel was the Director of Bands at Westwood High School in Mesa, Arizona and taught in public schools in Colorado and North Carolina. He is also the 2021 recipient of the O.M. Hartsell Excellence in Teaching Award from the Arizona Music Educators Association.

"As a music teacher, I continue to be inspired by my colleagues, the incredible band staff at Mountain Ridge and my students: they care so much about each other, the music and the band program as a whole," said Vogel.

The Mountain Ridge band program has won multiple awards including:
  • Received the 2021 Citation of Excellence Award from the National Band Association.
  • Saxophone Quartet: received an invitation to the 2021 The Midwest Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.
  • Wind Ensemble: performed at the 2020 Arizona Music Educators Conference.
  • Performed as a Featured Band at the 2019 Music for All National Concert Band Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana.
  • Mountain Ridge Pride of the West Marching Band was named the 2019 ABODA Division 1 and AzMBA Class 4A Arizona State Marching Band Champions.
  • ABODA "William E. Richardson Program of Distinction Award" recognizing superior achievement in all areas of the program
Listeners still have time to nominate their favorite music teachers. Each month a deserving music teacher and the performance of their band, choir, or orchestra will be heard on 94.5 KOOL-FM for the month. The winning teacher's students will receive a pizza party and a check of $1,000 for the music program.
