Music that Describes Guillermo

Guillermo Gonzalez was nominated anonymously.

"Mr. Gonzalez has built a mariachi program that is amongst the best in the Los Angeles Unified School District," explains the nominator. "In the four years of it's existence, with 1 1/2 of those years being virtual, they have reached a high level of professionalism.  He has helped his students feel comfortable on stage. This has helped them become better public speakers. All of his students graduate from high school, and 100% go on to college. His leadership has inspired his students to want to pursue mariachi, and several are involved with their college music programs."
