MOUNT VERNON — An eight-year era has come to an end in the Mount Vernon High School music department, as band director Andrew Sundman has announced his resignation from the position.

Sundman has resigned, according to a statement released to the MVHS community, in order to spend more time with his family.

“The reason I have decided to resign is to put my family first,” Sundman said in the statement. “My wife works full-time and we have two boys, one-year old and three-year old. It has become increasingly difficult to maintain my responsibilities as your band director, father, husband and soldier. I simply need to be home more than is required of a band director.”
