RIVERTON -- A beloved music teacher at Riverton High School ended her career on a high note.

LeAnna Willmore has been teaching kids to love music for 38 years. On Wednesday night, she picked up her baton for the last time to direct her final concert.

She says she couldn't think of a better way to go out. "It's the most wonderful culmination of music and beautiful students that I could ever have," she said.

Over her long career, Willmore won many national and state awards, including this year's Huntsman Educator Award.
