"NATS for a Lifetime" is an online showcase featuring NATS members who have been active in NATS throughout their teaching and performing careers for at least 25 years. These members have consistently contributed to their NATS chapter(s) and local communities and are examples of how participation in Chapter, Regional, and National NATS events helps teachers and their students to develop professionally through opportunities for growth and service to the arts of singing and teaching. They are an inspiration to all who know them and their work, and we think you should know about them, too!
These stories stand as a tribute to the honorees' professional achievements and contributions to their NATS chapters and communities. Their inspiring legacies are well-known to their chapter colleagues - those who have benefited directly from their many contributions - but they are often not well-known outside their chapters. Through these articles, we share the contributions of these outstanding individuals with all NATS members so that they, too, may be inspired by their stories.
