What Are They Saying About Dr. Cheek?

Dr. Cheek has served as a catalyst for the transformation that has occurred within our school district during his tenure. I have never seen an individual more capable than Dr. Cheek in bringing about change through music. I am grateful that he was able to touch the lives of the students here and expose them to a high level of performance that is second to none.

Dr. Cheek is an asset in whatever position he occupies. He is a man of integrity and scruples and is always fully professional in his comportment. He serves as a mentor and role model to all whom come under his tutelage.

Perhaps what makes Dr. Cheek a quality music educator is his knowledge of music and his ability to get others to understand music. He is so personable in relating to everyone; yet he remains relentless in pursuing excellence in music education and performance. Dr. Cheek is truly one of God's gifts to the field of music and education.

As a colleague and administrator, I have found Dr. Cheek to be very caring, enthusiastic, dedicated, and motivational to the students that he teaches. Through teaching music, he teaches discipline, diversity, culture, history, values, teamwork, dedication, and the true meaning of hard work.  His commitment as a music teacher is obvious.
