David and Mary Fehr to return as Clinton Attaché directors
During the February school board meeting, the Clinton Public School District’s Board of Trustees accepted a recommendation from Dr. Tim Martin to have David and Mary Fehr resume direction of Clinton’s Attaché Show Choir.
Beginning in April, the long-time directors will once again be at the helm of one of the nation’s most decorated show choirs after retiring in 2020.
Under the recommendation, the Fehrs will return in a part-time paraprofessional role to direct and conduct the program.
“We are looking forward to the opportunity to work for Clinton Schools and with Attaché again,” long time director David Fehr said. “We’ve been blessed to have great kids, parents and tradition for so long.”
Assistant Superintendent Anthony Goins said the Fehrs have a proven track record of success with Attaché and the Clinton Public School District. “We are very fortunate and excited to have them back in the district and look forward to having them continue to lead Attaché and compete at the highest level.”
“Attaché has always been a pillar of success for Clinton High School,” CHS principal Brett Robinson said, “and I am excited to have Mr. and Mrs. Fehr returning to lead this nationally renowned program. This is another step toward normalcy for our students and our school.”
Attaché alum and parent of an Attaché crew member, Dr. John Goolsby Jr. said the reason for Attaché’s national success begins with David and Mary Fehr.
“David and Mary Fehr are two talented directors who produce great music and great visuals while also teaching valuable life lessons like hard work and realizing your potential. They’ve shown decades worth of students that it’s not just about singing and dancing but about putting in the work and making that work pay off.”
Tryouts and auditions for Clinton’s Attaché Show Choir will be conducted in April in preparation for the 2021-2022 school year and competition season.
Details about auditions will be released at a later date.
