Nationally Recognized Music Education Program
For the fourth year, Greenville County Schools has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. More than 600 school districts nationwide received the honor.
The award program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education part of a well-rounded education. Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education.
“Recognition of our music programs speaks to the outstanding quality of work by our teachers and students. We are very fortunate to have some of the best music educators in the country leading our music programs and are extremely grateful for the ongoing support provided by the School Board, district administration, and the community,” said Bradley Wingate, GCS Director of Visual and Performing Arts.
The NAMM Foundation advances active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public service programs.
