KMEA Advocacy Receives Grant From CMA Foundation

Music is recognized as a well-rounded subject, which stands on equal footing with Math, Science and Reading. KMEA Advocacy applied for and was granted a Music Advocacy Grant from the Country Music Association Foundation and the National Association for Music Education. KMEA created this commercial for television and social media using the grant award. It features Miss Kansas 2021 Taylor Clark, Sterling High School Band, McPherson High School Choir, Lawrence Free-State Orchestra and Dodge City High School Musical Theatre.
