North Central High School is among 10 schools nationwide being recognized by the Grammy Foundation this year for their excellence in music education. Each year the foundation recognizes public high schools for their commitment to music instruction throughout the school year. North Central has also been handed "Enterprise" status along with their designation as a Grammy Signature School, which is a nod to their exceptional efforts in spite of lesser funding.
Today and tomorrow, students have the opportunity to interact with people in the music industry, including executives from the Grammy Foundation, Ford Motor Company and distinguished members of the Pacific Northwest music community.
The award presentation is this evening at 6:30 pm in North Central’s auditorium. The evening also includes interviews and a concert from North Central’s band. The custom award will be presented at 7:15 pm along with a $5,500 check to benefit the music program.
