Foothillers Remember Mr. Hubler

“Mr. Hubler instilled in me a life-long love of choral music. He taught us appreciation for a wide variety of music styles and always expected the best of us in our performances.” Twila Niemi Godley

“He was a warm and understanding man and great director.” Derrell Fisher

“Mr. Hubler held his students to the highest standards and inspired us to be far better than we imagined. It was a great privilege to be a member of the Red Robe Choir.” Marla Anderson Hicks

“That enthusiasm he had for the love of singing was transferred to many of his students at GHS.”  Barbara Gill Smith

“Don Hubler was a wonderful teacher, mentor, and friend. His high standards as the director of the Red Robe Choir at Grossmont High School stayed with us our entire lives. As Directors of the GHS Museum, we have had many alumni comment on the impact Don made on their lives.  When Grossmont celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2010, we were able talk with Don and share our gratitude for all he has meant to us.”  Connie and Lynn Baer

“Don Hubler was a master choral director. Being in Red Robe Choir under his direction was the highlight of my GHS experience. He taught us singing techniques that I still use. Since I am a soprano, he insisted that we should "never reach up for those high notes; always reach down." When I'm singing in my church choir now, I always think of that so I won't strain or screech for those high A's or B flats. I thank him for nurturing my love for excellent quality choral music.  Janine Burch
