The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation has named Hanover County Public Schools (HCPS) as a “Best Community for Music Education” for the sixth year in a row. Hanover County is one of only fourteen school divisions in the Commonwealth of Virginia to achieve this coveted status.

The NAMM Foundation awards this designation to divisions and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment to offering comprehensive music education to all students. It further serves to recognize the outstanding efforts of teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community leaders who have made music education part of the curriculum.

Barry Flowe, HCPS Curriculum Specialist for Performing Arts, said, “We work diligently to provide high-quality music education and performance opportunities to our students, and we are very excited of our accomplishment again this year. It was especially meaningful to receive this news the same week of our Festival of the Arts and Sciences where over 500 of our talented students performed. I was honored to announce this achievement to our community that symbolizes the exceptional talent and commitment of our music educators and students, as well as the strong support of our division’s administration, parents, and community.”

The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit organization that serves to advance music education and participation around the world. For more information about the “Best Community for Music Education” program, please visit their website.
