BHS Wins 2021 Support Music Merit Award
Ballard High School has once again been honored with the SupportMusic Merit Award from The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation. This is the third year in a row that BHS has been so recognized for its outstanding commitment to music education. The SupportMusic Merit Award recognizes individual schools that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. Our directors went the extra mile this year in finding innovative ways to compensate for the challenges of teaching music in a virtual setting, and the NAMM Foundation has recognized the value of our program. As boosters, we are proud to support BHS, a school that consistently demonstrates its dedication to music education and a commitment to the role of music and arts in a well-rounded education.
