    B.M. Music Education (K-12), Instrumental Emphasis

  • Hello, I'm Mrs. Garner, the Director of Bands for Overhills High School. I'm beginning my sixth year of teaching in Harnett County and third year as a Jaguar.

    Music has always been my passion and I love sharing that with my students. I proudly served in the Marines as a Marine Musician from 2008-2012. After the military, I attended UNCP and was the drum major for The Spirit of the Carolina's Marching Band. 

    I'm a member of the National Association for Music Education (NAFME), North Carolina Music Educator Association (NCMEA) Southeastern District Band Directors Association (SEDBA), and Band of America's Few (BAF). For more info, look at the Marching Jags Webpage.
