5-12 Band Director ~ Alma Center-Humbird-Merrillan
Brenna Ohrmundt (UWSP '18) is currently in her second year at the school district of Alma Center-Humbird-Merrillan (Lincoln Schools) where she teaches 5-12 Band, lessons, and 5/6 General Music (and this year Digital Imaging!). Ohrmundt is also a WSMA Adjudicator, freelance arranger, and private teacher. She is currently doing research on social-emotional learning and its potential impact on student musicians and the COVID19 crisis, and developing curriculum for "Beginning Band Boot Camp" to help provide "instrumentless" musical outlets for budding band students.
During her time at Stevens Point, Ohrmundt was involved in many activities that have greatly influenced her current career path. Most notably are interning with the Central Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra and Music Department Promotions, volunteering with Very Young Composers, 2017 Conducting Competition, principal clarinetist, and many more! She has received numerous awards during her time at UW-Stevens Point such as the Chancellor's Leadership Award and the University Leadership Award, but is most thankful for the amazing faculty, friends, and memories that she has made during her time as a Pointer!
Brenna Ohrmundt, after a few years of teaching, hopes to return to the collegiate realm to earn higher degrees in Music Education and Conducting in hopes to become a professor of music education to inspire future educators, much like the ones at Stevens Point have done for her!
