Washington State Wins MENC Appearance Award!

Just found out today that Washington State has won the 2010 National MENC Appearance Award to be presented at the Mrs. America Pageant! Throughout this past year as Mrs. Pierce County and ultimately Mrs. Washington, I have been busy along with fellow Mrs. Washington contestants promoting the importance of keeping Music Education in our schools. While promoting my own platform "Embracing the Special Needs Child" with each appearance, I have had the opportunity to share with people how music has played such a important role in the development of my youngest son Cody who has Autism. It has been an honor and privilege to champion such a worthy cause! As a Mrs. Washington contestant last year, I was also awarded the 2009 Ambassador of Music Education for collecting over 1,400 signatures and the most funds to help keep Music in our schools! I am so proud of the Mrs. Washington Pageant Directors for emphasizing the importance of "Making a Difference". I belong to a wonderful pageant family! Most importantly, thank you to Mrs. America and MENC staff for partnering to help keep the Music playing for our children and allowing us to be a part of the process. Bless you for your service!
