Teacher of the Week: Benji Horrell


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Our Teacher of the Week brings sweet music to the halls of Hoggard High School.

With a performer’s heart and an educator’s head, Benji Horrell is an inspiration to both past and present students.

The Choral Director says performing, not teaching, is his favorite thing because that’s when everyone is singing at one time and that means there are sometimes as many as 150 singers on stage.

Teaching is important to Mr. Horrell as well, saying everyone should make the most of their high school experience because you only get one shot at it.

He suggests getting involved in any activity that makes you happy.

Each year, Mr. Horrell’s Spring Concert has a tradition of bringing alumni up on stage to join his students in the singing of the Hoggard Alma Mater.
