The Surrey Board of Education has recognized longtime teacher Stephen Horning for his many years of commitment to Surrey students and invaluable contributions to music education.

Horning has been a music teacher at École Simon Cunningham Elementary for 30 years.

"In that time, he has really made his mark on their music program," said board chair Laurie Larsen at the Feb. 12 public meeting, where Horning was recognized.

Trustees also congratulated Horning on being a recent recipient of the British Columbia Music Educator Association's 2019 Outstanding Educator Award. The provincial award, which he received in late October, recognizes an educator who exemplifies a high standard of achievement and professionalism in music in the public education system.

In addition to teaching, Horning is also director of the community Surrey Children's Choir, which performed at the meeting. Larsen noted that prior to coming to Surrey, Horning taught in Campbell River.

"We are so fortunate that he chose to move and teach in Surrey," she said, congratulating him on the BCMEA award. "It is very well deserved and thank you for all that you do for the students of Surrey."

Horning received a framed certificate and an indigenous carved spoon from the board.
