METAIRIE, La. (WGNO) – Like a symphony that takes time, Mike Genevay takes his time.

And he’s got the time.

After almost 50 years as a band teacher, Mike retired.

But wait a minute.

WGNO Good Morning New Orleans features reporter Bill Wood says Mike’s baton still has the beat.

He’s been a leader of the band for almost half a century.

He left his last job at Haynes Academy on a high note.

And just as he retired, he’ll be back.

Working Wednesday afternoons with the jazz band.
