From Harford County Public Schools:
In October 2000, the Harford County Public School System began an Educator Hall of Fame program in which the Board of Education of Harford County inducts one member into the “Hall” each month during the school year. Former Harford County Public School educators who have provided at least 20 years of extraordinary service to students and staff in the school system are considered for nomination by the Harford County Retired School Personnel Association (HCRSPA). The nominee is prominently featured on the Harford County Public School website, www.hcps.org. The nominee (or his/her family in case the nominee is deceased or unavailable) is also honored at a subsequent Board of Education meeting where he/she is presented with a plaque as well as a Board certificate and certificates from County and State government officials.
On February 28, 2011, Mr. Dwight Enterline was inducted into the Harford County Public Schools Educator Hall of Fame as its 159th member in recognition of his 38 years of extraordinary service to the students, staff and community of the Harford County Public Schools as a teacher and supervisor.
Dwight Enterline was born at home in Manheim, Pennsylvania, in 1943, the youngest of four sons to Charles and Mary Enterline. He attended public school and graduated from Manheim Central High School in 1961. Mr. Enterline went on to further his education at Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pennsylvania, where he graduated in 1965 with a bachelor of science in Music Education. Mr. Enterline began teaching music at Aberdeen Jr. High School in 1965 when the school was first opened. He taught mostly eighth grade general music and directed several choruses. When Aberdeen Middle School opened its doors in 1973, Mr. Enterline transferred there and taught music for the next 12 years. During this time, he also advanced his education by earning his master’s degree from Towson University in 1974. In 1985, he transferred to Aberdeen High School as the choral director for five years. Mr. Enterline was then promoted in 1990 to Helping Teacher in Music, and remained in that capacity for 13 years until his retirement. As Helping Teacher in Music, he observed, worked with and supported first- and second-year music teachers. He interpreted curriculum guides, helped improve lesson planning skills and presented model lessons. Mr. Enterline was involved in several major projects and initiatives during his career. He was chairperson for numerous music curriculum committees and assisted with the planning and logistics of many music festivals. In particular, he scheduled the Solo and Ensemble Festival and helped with the organization and implementation of the All County music auditions, rehearsals and concerts. Mr. Enterline is a member of the Music Educators National Conference and the Maryland Music Educators Association, as well as the Phi Mu Alph Sinfonia Music Fraternity, and is an honorary member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. After 38 years with Harford County Public Schools, Mr. Enterline retired in 2003 to be the caregiver for his ill wife.
