Kadaris McEachin, a junior music education major from High Point, N.C., was awarded full funding through the North Carolina Music Educators Association (NCMEA) to attend the 2019 Music Education Collegiate Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C. in June.
McEachin competed against other music education majors from the state of North Carolina to receive funding to attend the summit, in DC. He will spend three days in Washington D.C., with other music education students from around the country advocating for music education in our schools. He will also have the opportunity to meet with local North Carolina senators to share the impact that music education in North Carolina has had on his life, as well as, bring awareness to the importance of keeping music in our schools.
The mission of NCMEA is to advance music education by promoting the understanding and making of music by all. Since its founding in 1970, it has been the organization's intention to provide valuable information and resources for teachers, students and communities throughout North Carolina.
