Members of KMEA North Central District have a special opportunity to nominate an administrator as a candidate for the KMEA NC Honor Administrator Award. This annual award recognizes those administrators who have demonstrated continuing leadership in developing, improving, and supporting music education within a wider commitment to arts education, i.e., music, theater, visual arts, and dance. This year’s Honor Administrator is Emporia High School Principal Dr. Britton Hart.
Music educators are aware of the importance of principals and superintendents in creating and maintaining successful music programs. School district policy coupled with administrative management decisions pertaining to budget, scheduling, and facilities often have a long-range impact on arts education. Hence, administrators are key players in molding music education curricula. The Honor Administrator Award is an attempt to encourage and recognize the on-going administrative support of arts education in local school districts of Kansas. Dr. Hart’s dedication to all students’ success is evident in his commitment to the arts, teachers and staff.
