NCHS Teacher up for Grammy

A Natrona County High School teacher is in the running for a Grammy Award.

Band and music teacher, Shawn Weis, is a quarter-finalist for the Grammy Music Educator Award.

The award recognizes educators who make significant impacts in music education.

Weis is one of 197 music teachers across the country to make it to the quarter-finals, and the only teacher from Wyoming.

"It's a cool feeling. I know there’s a lot of educators in Wyoming that probably deserve it every bit as much as I do, but it's nice to be recognized so it's a good feeling."

Semi-finalists for the award will be announced in September.
