MCALLEN, Texas – For the seventh straight year, McAllen ISD has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from the NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. This is the most any school district in the Rio Grande Valley has received this award.
The district will hold a press conference on this honor where a representative from NAMM will formally present the award to the district on Monday, April 15 at 10:00 a.m. at the De Leon Middle School library located at 4201 N. 29th Street.
The award is based on a district’s entire music program from elementary through high school and from campus to campus. Districts that have been recognized by the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Foundation are often held up as models for other educators.
