Wason is right at home for Army band concert


Being in front of a room full of people at Farmington High School is nothing new to German teacher Cheryl Wason. And that is where she will be Saturday. Sort of.

Saturday, Wason will appear before a room full of as many as 800 people. She won't be teaching German, though. She'll be playing a baritone saxophone.

A member of the 451st Army Band out of Fort Snelling for the past 32 years, Wason credits her decision to learn and ultimately teach German to her role in the band.
