January 26, 2015
This is the second year the prestigious, Music Educator of the Year Grammy will be given at the 57th annual awards ceremony, February 8th in Los Angeles. The award was established to recognize current music educators who have made a significant, lasting contribution to music education. This year 7,000 nominees were submitted for review spanning elementary school teachers to college professors. Jared Cassedy, Fine Arts Director for the Windham School District is one of only ten to make the pool of finalists.
Portland, Maine dealer, Michael Logue has had the pleasure of working with this much-respected and well-liked director for three years, raising nearly $11,000 for Cassedy's program with the Mattress Fundraiser. The Windham High School Band (https://www.facebook.com/WindhamHighSchoolBand) is very proud of this
prestigious honor, announcing, “…no matter what happens, you’ve already won in Windham.”
Winner of the award will not only take home a five-pound, four-ounce knick knack for their desk, they will also pick up a $10,000 honorarium. And even the finalists are winners, each receiving a $1,000 honorarium, as well. “I am very proud to be able to work with such a talented group and an exceptional director,” says Logue.
