Ernie Haase of Ernie Haase and Signature Sound was recently selected to be in the inaugural class of "Legends of Castle High School." Haase attended Castle High School, which is located in Newburgh, Indiana.

The Legends program was initiated this year in an effort to recognize alumni who have distinguished themselves for their contributions in their field of work. By providing these positive role models to current students, the school hopes to inspire them in their studies as well as extra-curricular activities.

Haase has been faithful to return to the school to mentor youth and has included Castle High School students in various Ernie Haase and Signature Sound CD and DVD productions.

Ernie Haase says, “I am thrilled to be presented with this honor. This award has special meaning because it connects to my roots. Those formative years of education gave me the foundation I would need in all areas of life." He continues, "It has been my life’s work to see that the Gospel of Jesus is proclaimed. I am truly touched that my efforts have had an impact in this community.”

The Legends award was presented by nomination and supported by letters of recommendation. A member of the Legends committee, Bobbie Hudson, explained, “Ernie was nominated by two individuals who were adamant that it was Ernie’s vocal talent and his immense compassion towards others that made him a clear choice to be one of the first Castle High School Legends.”

The Legend awards are intended to provide hope and relevance to current students in their areas of study and extra-curricular activity.
