• GRAMMY Foundation Recognizes WHS


    We all know the Grammy’s celebrate great music: turns out they also reward standout music education.

    Westminster High School’s music program has been named the recipient of the GRAMMY Foundation’s Community Award of $2000 to continue its music programs and performances at a high level.

    Staff and students from the school’s various programs were recognized by the Board of Education at last week’s meeting.

    According to its website, “The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1988 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture — from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals.”

    The Signature Schools Community Award has now distributed more than $800,000 in grants to more than 400 schools.

    One of the core values of the GRAMMY Foundation is to draw public attention to the critical importance of maintaining music education as a core element of school curricula.

    Congratulations to the talented teachers and performers at Westminster High School!
