2022 Hall of Fame - Mike Menefee
Our 2022 inductee for the Evergreen District Hall of Fame, Mike Menefee, is a quiet man, but a man of achievement and of music. His contribution to Evergreen District has been musical rather than administrative and it is notable that he chose chapter leadership rather than district leadership. In his 40 or so years as a barbershopper, he has been a director for 25 years, a noted arranger, a faculty member for Harmony College Northwest. a singer in several quartets. Some of his quartets include: Olympic Knights – Div 2 champs, PrimaChord – also Div 2 Champs, Vocal Magic – District Champion, Fast Track, Jay Birds, and Mosquito Fleet.
Mike has been the president of QCED for the last few years, and has helped navigate through difficult COVID times, working to re-establish a show in Ocean Shores. He is a giving person, who has quietly coached and helped many new barbershoppers to grow in their understanding of our style, and will always deflect to give credit to others.
He is a master tag teacher, encourager of all people in barbershop, has directed men and womens choruses, and is a wonderful arranger, trumpet player, and builder of airplanes! He has received numerous accolades and awards at the schools where he has taught. Mike lives in Bremerton, WA.
