Band, Junior Band Director

1954 Anchor, p. 10

Mr. Girt was also elementary school band instructor at John W. Daniel across the street. He received permission for me to play
with the Junior Band during my 5th and 6th grade years. My 6th Grade Teacher, Miss Saunders, thought my time would have been
better spent catching up on arithmetic (Iím still behind). Then-Miss Ellena Armistead, my 7th Grade mentor, reluctantly allowed
my leaving early, too.

This newsletter mentioned that Russell Girt was a music instructor at NNHS.

You may have already known that, but I bet you didn't know that Russell Girt was also the first husband of my aunt,
  Shirley Dona Linkous Girt Callaway.

They had one child, Susan Melody Girt (Mendenhall). Shirley and Susan now reside separately in Carrollton, TX.
