On June 8th it was announced that LHS and MHS Band Director Mr. Robert Green was selected as a Legacy Applicant/Quarterfinalist for the 2023 Music Educator Award, presented by the Recording Academy and the Grammy Museum. The Recording Academy is the same group that awards Grammy Awards to musical artists. He is one of 125 Legacy Applicants from the 2022 application process to be eligible for the 2023 award.
The Music Educator Award was established to recognize current educators — kindergarten through college, public and private schools — who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education and who demonstrate a commitment to the broader cause of maintaining music education in the schools. The recipient will be recognized during GRAMMY Week 2023, which takes place ahead of the 2023 GRAMMYs, officially known as the 65th GRAMMY Awards.
Each year, one recipient is selected from 10 finalists and recognized for their remarkable impact on students' lives. The 10th annual honoree will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the 65th GRAMMY Awards and a range of GRAMMY Week events. The nine additional finalists will receive a $1,000 honorarium, and the schools of all 10 finalists will receive matching grants.
Good Luck Mr. Green and we are rooting for you!
