“Calm, cool, and professional” were just three of the complimentary words used to describe the latest Nogales Unified School District teacher, Challenger’s music educator Fred Milner, honored at a governing board meeting.

NUSD Supt. Fernando Parra, who said Milner was one year ahead of him at Nogales High School, highlighted Milner’s many positive attributes, including that he is “extremely talented and woven into every part of Challenger’s culture.”

Milner, who has 26 years of experience in NUSD, infuses his music lessons with culture and respect, Parra added, and read from a tribute from Challenger Principal Wil Arias and the Challenger staff which, among many positive comments, noted that Milner “arrived early and stayed late” to work with students on a number of projects besides teaching his classes, including Challenger’s Color Guard.

“His attitude is infectious,” the tribute concluded.
