A.C. Flora High School orchestra director Jarvernique Tinsley has been named one of 50+ Directors Who Make a Difference by School Band and Orchestra (SB&O) Magazine. The recognition honors music directors from each state and Washington, D.C. Tinsley was the only South Carolina music director selected.

“When I found out about this recognition, I was honestly surprised. I didn’t even have my mind set on this or any achievement of this caliber. I was in shock but humbly grateful,” said Tinsley.

This is Tinsley’s second year as A.C. Flora’s orchestra director. In the article, he told SB&O that his proudest moment as an educator was when he helped his students make region orchestra.

Tinsley believes that going above and beyond and pushing students out of their comfort zones is what it takes to receive this recognition.
