MR. GEORGE BUTTERFIELD
In 1968, George replaced Ken Green as the MHS band, jazz band and orchestra instructor. He is remembered fondly. George was more than just a teacher. He took a student shopping for marching shoes when his family could not afford them, and he got a 15 year-old drummer his first paying gig. In the mid-1970’s Mr. Butterfield left the Music Department and went on to teach World Culture and State Requirements until the mid-1980’s when he left the teaching profession and went into sales. He passed away some 15-20 years ago, after leaving MHS. Cause of death is unknown.
