That's a wonderful story but in no way a surprising one.

As a former HS band director (18 years) and finally as a retired university professor in aeronautics (34 years), I never cease to be amazed by the thoughtful revelations I hear and read from my former students. Many of them are now music as well as aviation professionals.

Looking back on the events and trials/tribulations that we jointly enjoyed/endured, it is starling to hear their take on what they remember about our time together. The revelations are often heartwarming, humbling, and very humorous. I love it and enjoy hearing from them.

I always said that I wanted my music students to be better than I ever was in my prime. For the aviators, I said "you'll be flying aircraft that I was not even allowed to touch when I was your age" These were good things for me to strive for since in probably no other profession like teaching does one have such an opportunity to forever shape young men and women's lives. Call it advice, mentoring, assistance, or just plain "pointing one in the right direction", it is very fulfilling to have been a part of the process.
