BUCKHANNON — It was a surprise award for Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School’s retiring band director and the highest honor given by the Phi Beta Mu — the National Bandmasters Fraternity.

Andrew Scott was selected as West Virginia’s Outstanding Band Director for 2012-2013 and formally presented with his award during a surprise announcement at B-UMS Tuesday morning.

Scott said he was honored to receive the award and has no regrets looking back at his 37 years in music education.

“I’ve been able to touch a number of students with the gift of music and the love of music,” he said. “I’ve been able to teach and mentor some perfectly wonderful talent and we’ve had some exemplary band members over the years.”
