Robert L. Wilhite Award of Excellence

Robert L. Wilhite

Robert L. Wilhite was inducted into the LMEA Hall of Fame in 1991.

Quoting Mr. Wilhite, “I teach band in a small, rural community. For the past 25 years it has helped me tremendously to have a sound philosophy of general education, the ability to transfer knowledge to my students, and sustain a positive attitude about student ability to achieve and overachieve.” Additional information about Robert Wilhite can be found in the LMEA Hall of Fame book.

LMEA adopted the Robert L. Wilhite Award of Excellence in 2019 to recognize quality instrumental high school and middle school instrumental music programs serving historically disadvantaged student populations.
