In 2018, Natalie Wilson (Music Education, '84) received the “Tenuto Award” from the Friends of Frank DeMiero Jazz Festival, and she was named the Regional Outstanding Music Educator in 2012 and 2014. In 2013, the Camas School District named her “Employee of the Year.”

And, most recently, Wilson learned she will soon be inducted into the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) “Hall of Fame.”

“She is truly exceptional at her craft,” said Grass Valley Principal Sean McMillan of Wilson at a Nov. 25 Camas School Board meeting where district leaders honored Wilson’s impending “Hall of Fame” induction. “She teaches me so much about music, it’s great … to watch our kids at the elementary (level) reap everything she brings on a daily basis … our kids are lucky to have her every single day.” Wilson said the Hall of Fame induction was “really humbling.”
