Port Clinton High School Band Director Sean DeLong had been been selected to join a marching band of 400 band directors from across the country in the historic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thanksgiving Day this past week.

The Saluting America’s Band Directors parade entry again conveyed its theme, “America’s band directors: We teach music. We teach life.” to recognize the extraordinary dedication and accomplishments of band directors and music educators everywhere.

Throughout their careers, the music educators in this band have collectively mentored and taught hundreds of thousands of students. These professionals not only teach and direct music, but also teach about life itself. The band was directed by

nationally known music educator and innovative band director Jon Waters.

The sponsoring organization behind the Saluting America’s Band Directors project is the Michael D. Sewell Memorial Foundation, based in Pickerington, Ohio.

The foundation was created to recognize and carry on the work of the late Mike Sewell, who dedicated his life to the school and community music programs in Pickerington and the Central Ohio area for almost 40 years.
