We are excited to announce that the Kings Local School District has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. This is the sixth time and the fifth year in a row that the District has received this designation!
 
Now in its 22nd year, the Best Communities for Music Education designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. This distinction was awarded to only 686 Districts.
 
"To have received this designation as we fight along with all performing artists to survive is so poignant. We specifically thank the administrative team of the Kings Local School District for their trust as we have navigated this pandemic and kept our ensembles playing and singing," said KHS Choir Director, Hope Milthaler.
 
The NAMM Foundation is a non-profit supported in part by the National Association of Music Merchants and its approximately 10,400 members around the world. The foundation advances active participation in music-making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving, and public service programs.

Congratulations to all of our Kings music educators who continue to make a difference in our student's lives and bring beautiful music into ours! Special thanks to Mr. Scott Hayward for his work in submitting the application.
