Local music teacher Krista Fanning has been honored several times on the national stage. She has been nominated for a Grammy Award as Music Educator of the Year.

Here's the video she submitted to support her case:

This year she is one of the 10 finalists. Fanning contacted KEEL News this week to let us know she did not win the Grammy, but she has won $1,000 to use in her band room.

She is the band director at Caddo Middle Magnet. I'm sure this is not the last time you will hear her name.
