Ada —

"Krayton’s outstanding musical accomplishments as well as his academic standing as an honor roll student earned him acceptance to ECU in the fall of 2013," Overmier said.  "In the short time he has been at the university, he has won first chair in the Wind Ensemble, and he has received the Outstanding Musician award, as well as the Bron Warren Centennial Scholarship Award."

Krayton acknowledges his ECU instructor Eric Hall as his mentor and says of him, “He just pushes me to do my best…and sometimes better than that.”

After he graduates from ECU, Krayton hopes to be an instructor of either a middle school or high school band and  to perform in an orchestra. Of the Concerto Competition, he said, “I’m very blessed to have had this opportunity and to have won.”
