Education > Charles Gerheart, a LAHS grad, wins NEA teaching award for his work with the marching band at Cobre

By Tris DeRoma

If the last name “Gerheart” sounds familiar, it should. Don and Jane Gerheart have been a part of the Los Alamos music teaching community for many years.
Recently their son, Charles Gerheart, who teaches concert and marching band at Cobre High School won the National Education Association, New Mexico award for Teaching Excellence for 2013-14.
Gerheart, a Los Alamos High graduate, said one of his fellow teachers nominated him, as well as a teacher from Mayfield in Las Cruces who saw his band perform at a recent competition.
“The person from Mayfield saw my band perform at the New Mexico Tournament of Bands Marching Bands Competition about two years ago, and she was impressed enough that she thought I should be nominated for this award,” Gerheart said. His said his fellow colleague had been following his progress at Cobre for the past 14 years.
Gerheart gives much credit to his band for the award.
“We just work really hard for perfection,” he said. “We’re pretty small, so we just try to do the things we can do. We can’t do some of the larger formations that some bands can, so we try to do what we do very very clean.”
