Bill Brackman came to the Ladue School District in 1963 and taught until 1993.  He served as elementary band director, marching band director, junior high band director, and orchestra director.  His dedication and enthusiasm for teaching was exemplary during his 30 year tenure with the Ladue School District.  This award is presented to the senior or seniors who have been involved with the band program over the past four years and who has/have demonstrated instrumental proficiency.   The student should participate in other activities such as the musical orchestra or jazz band and be an individual who consistently thinks of the group first,  never expecting anything in return.  This award will go to an individual who has gone beyond the call of duty, who has willingly assisted in the day to day operation of the band program, and who demonstrates qualities that are similar to those of Bill Brackman. The award will also include a scholarship toward the senior’s future education.
