The Hudsonville Bands would, for one final time, like to wish Mr. Good well wishes on his retirement. In his 27 years at Hudsonville Schools, he not only taught students how to perform music on instruments but also how to perform well in life.


The impact he has made on students will be engrained in their lives for years to come, and even his perfected art of sarcasm will be missed :) There are not enough words to express how deeply he will be missed by students, parents and staff members.


From the hearts of your students and friends Mr. Good, we wish you nothing but the best!
