Teacher Spotlight

Meet Mr. Ben Ezell. Mr. Ezell is in his 3rd year teaching Special Education at Cold Springs High School. He is originally from Western North Carolina and went to school at the University of North Carolina at Asheville where he played basketball. He came to Alabama by way of Chattanooga, TN where he worked as an ESL Teacher for several years. At one time Mr. Ezell was a decent basketball player but now he occupies his time strumming guitars and hiking in the mountains when he gets a chance. Mr. Ezell enjoys working with students and helping them achieve their goals in whatever way he can.

We are so lucky to have Mr. Ezell as part of the CSH family. Sometimes we are lucky enough to hear a little guitar and singing from him.

Fun Fact

Band Notes

The Royal Blue Band has been entertaining us this season with "A Tribute to Social Distancing". Social distancing has become a part of our lives, and the band has helped put some fun in it. They have chosen some very creative songs to commemorate this time. The halftime show opens with the Police mega-hit, "Don't Stand So Close to Me" followed by our color guard feature with the southern rock classic "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" by the Georgia Satellites. The show concludes with Gloria Gaynor's #1 disco hit, "I Will Survive" with alto saxophone soloist, Kaylee Windsor. The band is under the field command of Senior drum major, Kailey Chilcoat.

The band will be participating in the Cullman County Fair Parade (October 3rd), the Cullman County Band Exhibition (October 15th), and the Mud Creek Marching Competition at Hanceville High School (October 24th)
