Hanchett set for last time with the baton

For the past 33 years, Windom Area Schools has known only one band director - and he will conduct his final concerts over the next 10 days.

Eugene Hanchett came to Windom Area Schools in the fall of 1986, taking over for Thomas Klipfel. He retires as Windom's longest-serving band director.

And on the eve of his last Pops Concert on Thursday night, Hanchett is ready for one last time with the baton.

"I'm ready for it and excited," he says. "We're doing a lot of pieces that I've enjoyed doing over the years at the last concerts. It's a long time to reflect back on."

Hanchett's retirement was not a surprise. He had told his instrumental students at the beginning of the school year that this would be his final year as a teacher.

For much more on Hanchett's career, see the story on the Education page in the May 15 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen, on newsstands today.
