Newton Federal Bank Partners in Education, Eastside High School (EHS) takes pride in their passionate and dedicated staff; especially when it comes to Mr. Joel Singleton. When it comes to music, Joel can take a student’s interest and instill passion. Through good times and bad, his students have solace in his classroom as they entrust in him their troubles and find that he can relate from his own.

“I am honored and humbled because I am no more than anyone sitting on this stage. We all do it because we have a passion for it - a love for it; for students. This job is too hard not to enjoy it - who we do it for, who we do it with, who we get to share things with.”
