Dr. Stickney receives the "Distinquished Choral Director of the Year award" from the Maine chapter of the American Choral Directors Association.  Presented to him by President Dennis Boyd, President Elect Nic Dosman with Mr. Palmer giving his blessing.  

     My duties at Deering High School include conducting Chorus, Band, AP Band, and Pep Band. In addition, I teach an “Intro to Music”, with a performance-based emphasis utilizing the guitar and piano.  It is truly a joy to create vibrant sound and help young people develop their music skills and musicianship.  

     Music students at Deering High School participate in our Southern Maine District 2 music festival, All-State Music festival, American Choral Directors Association festival, Jazz Festivals and concerts.  It is my sincere hope that our young people will continue to create beautiful sound and enjoy a lifetime of music experiences. 

     As a 10th generation Mainer I enjoy the Grand State of Maine, especially its rocky coast in an annual pilgrimage to ancestral sites.  I especially enjoy the MET Opera’s high-definition productions, the Kotchzsmar Organ and any type of theatre.
