TURLOCK — Ruben Modesto, music instructor and band director at Turlock's Pitman High, will be a guest on Comcast SportsNet's pregame show before tonight's San Francisco Giants game. Modesto is a finalist in an "All Star Teacher Award" contest that could bring Pitman $20,000.
Modesto, a music teacher for 13 years, also runs Pitman's marching and pep bands. Last year, the band performed in the National Independence Day Parade in Washington DC.
Modesto will be featured on the cable show at 6:30 p.m. Voting in the contest is under way and continues through June 2.
