Tami Lopushinsky Inducted into State Music Teacher Hall of Fame

Columbia Elementary Music Teacher Tami Lopushinsky was inducted into the WMEA Hall of Fame class of 2024 and recognized as the Outstanding Music Educator for the North Central Region. Tami was inducted during the WMEA state conference in Yakima earlier this month. Tami started teaching music in the Wenatchee School District in 1999 and is set to retire this June.

The Washington Music Educators Hall of Fame was established by the WMEA Executive Board to give recognition for exceptional support, inspiration and outstanding contributions to the growth and development of music education, both public and private, in the state of Washington.

Tami expressed her surprise at receiving both awards. She was nominated for the Hall of Fame by Mr. Snedeker at Lewis & Clark and Mrs. Dobbins at Sunnyslope. Tami acknowledged that there are many talented music educators in their district, valley, and the North Central Region, and she continues to learn from them each year.

Tami said, "The mentors I have had set a good example of the musical opportunity to spark that love and appreciation for making, creating or listening to music. To see a student from years past still make that connection with a positive memory is very rewarding. It is a blessing to be in a job that you love what you teach and get to teach in a building with amazing people."

The WMEA Hall of Fame Wall of Recognition is commemorated at the Jerilyn S. McIntyre Music Building at Central Washington University.
