The Al & Gladys Wright

Lifetime Service to Bands Award

The Wright Award is a newly created recognition made possible by the ASBDA through the generous donation and contribution of Gladys Wright in memory of her husband Al.


The Wright Award is meant to recognize a retired band director who has made significant contributions to school bands during a distinguished career and continues to do so during retirement.

To be eligible for the award a recipient must have:

1. been an active ASBDA member and is currently a retired, dues-paying ASBDA member.

2. had a distinguished career prior to retirement which included service to bands and continued involvement by providing leadership, service, and/or other meaningful value to school bands, their directors, and to the profession as a whole.
