Larry spent 31 years teaching instrumental music in the Amana, West Branch and Marion Independent Schools before retiring in 2006. During his tenure at Marion, Larry headed the high school’s Site Team, ran the Marion Marching Invitational and hosted a Honor Band for 6th-8th graders. A life member of NEA, he served as president, head negotiator and grievance chair of his local Education Association.
