Emrick Congratulates Bangor School District on Scholastic
3/29/2016
MT. BETHEL – State Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Mt. Bethel) today applauded the Bangor Area School District on being nationally recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation for outstanding achievement in music education. The district is one of 476 districts nationwide to be listed among the Best Communities for Music Education (BCME).

“With more than 13,000 schools districts in the country, this distinction places Bangor in the top 3 percent in the nation,” said Emrick. “That’s quite an achievement, and something the teachers and students in the school’s music programs should be very proud of.”

NAMM evaluated the school districts based on elements such as funding, staffing of highly qualified teachers, community support and levels of participation. Designations were made to those that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education.

Bangor Area is among 62 Pennsylvania school districts to receive the designation.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s district office at (570) 897-0401 or (610) 746-5090.
