Bill Keaten presented the Chamber?s Outstanding Citizen of the Year award to David Doyle, RCHS choral music director. The award is given to acknowledge the recipients contributions to the community.
?I accept on behalf of all the teachers who work with your children every day.? Doyle humble said.
Student Leader Awards were presented to Ryan Johnson and Beth McDaniel. WISH-TV weatherman Randy Ollis was the guest speaker.
In a 2006 Paul Barada said about Doyle ?More importantly, he makes each member want to do his best. There is just something about the man that qualifies him for that very highest of accolades any teacher can ever hope to reach; he is truly a ?master instructor.? If our high school offered that title, as many do, David Doyle would be first on my list. His passion, his knowledge, his ability to teach, his sense of humor, and his belief in his students?young and not-so-young?make each choir member believe that they can make him proud of being even the smallest part of what he can create.?
