Norris Music Department wins award

Monday, November 30, 2009

The Nebraska Music Educators Association’s Exemplary Program Award was presented to the Norris Music Department last night at the NMEA convention. This is one of the most prestigious awards given by the Nebraska Music Educators Association and very few schools, let alone districts, have earned this distinction. The purpose of the award is to recognize “music programs and their communities that have maintained a long and distinguished tradition of excellence in music education”. There is an in-depth application, screening, and visitation process involved before a final recommendation is made for the recipient of the award.Congratulations go out to Becky Wilhelm, Evan Lee, Jessie Andre, Wes Hansmeyer, and Annette Mitchell, who accepted the award. Special recognition also went out to Gayle French and district administrators for their support of the music program as well.
