Mr. Trusty is only the 5th Arkansan to receive this honor. 

Mr. Trusty has been the Cabot High School Director of Bands for the last 30 years and plans to retire in June. Mr. Trusty’s ensembles have received superior ratings at the ASBOA contests for the past 20 years. His marching band has won many Sweepstakes and Grand Champion awards as well.
