Mrs. Harris taught more than music and helped save hundreds of kids that needed tough love from a teacher that blessed us all with her joyful spirit and gentle kindness.

Mrs Harris was my favorite teacher. She not only taught us music, but she also taught us ethics and the value of life. Mrs Harris made a great impact on my life. She will always be love and remembered, by many

Ms. Harris was a blessed teacher. She taught me about the Bible and what it meant to sing and magnify the Lord. Every song had a hidden message that she was trying to teach us. You had to listen to the lyrics to truly understand the message behind the music. If you were quiet and still, you could hear the Lord speaking to you.

Isaiah 42:10," Sing to the Lord a new song." In the GHS Touring Choir, we definitely sung a new song everyday or practiced it until we got it right. She was a perfectionist.

As I write this message, I can hear Ms. Harris say, "If you do not sing, then the rocks will cry out. Hold that note. Now, sing girly!"

You will be missed. You are embedded in our mind and heart.

Psalms 23: 4-6

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You aniont my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surley goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

If Eleanor Harris made an impact on anyone, I am the one. I remember all those times when practicing and preparing for concert, that she would "pop" me when I played wrong notes and wrong chords on the piano. She always told me not to sing, just to play and I did just that. Today, I have the pleasure of enjoying the gift of music and the appreciation for musical genres instilled in me by this fine lady. I miss her so. As choral director and band director of Knightdale High School, she is always in my memory when we sing the songs she taught me. I sometimes cry, even now, when I think about her.
