Greetings, my name is Stu Kersting, and I am the band director at South Middle.  This is my second year teaching in Salina, KS, but my fourth year teaching overall.  Before moving to Salina, I taught in a little town south of Kansas City called Louisburg, where I was the assistant band director in the district.  Along with teaching music I enjoy to play as well on both the saxophone and guitar.  I earned my Bachelor of Science in Instrumental Music Education from William Jewell College, located in Liberty, Missouri.  Also, I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.
