My name is Everett Hodges. I graduated from Oklahoma Christian in 1979. This is my 39th year to teach band and my 11th year back in Waurika. I have taught in both Texas and Oklahoma, most recently in Petrolia, TX for 12 years before I moved back to Waurika in 2007. In 1998, the Petrolia band was named the Outstanding Concert Band for Class A in all of Texas. The Waurika band has qualified for state 6 of the last 8 years, the only times in school history. In 2012, the band made its first I rating in state compeititon in school history. I am the Band Director and the Athletic Director. I was honored to be selected Waurika’s Teacher of the Year in 2016-17. I also drive a bus route morning and evening. I am married to Ann Hodges, WHS Math Instructor. Between us, we have 6 kids, (Kelli Plumb, Scott Hodges, Kaci Johnson on my side, and Steve, Jon, and Kyle Waid on wife's) and 11 grandkids (with a 12th on the way) -Carson, Jace, and Landon Plumb, Drew and Hallie Hodges, Molly and McKenzie Johnson, and Ella, Vivi, Corbin, and Bennett Waid.
