LENOX, Mass. — Monument Mountain Regional High School's class orator Emma Adler wouldn't be the same Emma if it weren't for band director Jeffrey Stevens.

Adler found her passion in music through her six years of working with Stevens. But she wasn't the only one. Stevens has been part of the school's Music Department for 34 years and is now retiring. Adler contacted thousands of musicians who were inspired by Stevens and collected letters of thanks.

For Adler, music is what helped build who she is today and on Sunday, she was just one of 132 students graduating who were inspired in some way by the teachers at Monument Mountain.
