Alumnus Named Quarterfinalist For Music Educator Award

CBS News announced a total of 197 music teachers from 187 cities across the U.S. as quarterfinalists for the Music Educator Award presented by the Recording Academy and the Grammy Museum.

NGU music education alumnus Caleb Ruppe from the class of 2015 and music teacher/choral director at Mayo and Cooley Springs-Fingerville Elementary in Spartanburg County School District Two was one of the 197 nominated for this honor.  

The Music Educator Award was established to "recognize current educators from kindergarten through college who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education and who demonstrate a commitment to the broader cause of maintaining music education in the schools.

The semifinalists will be announced in September.

The winner will be flown to New York to attend the 60th Annual Grammy Awards and a range of Grammy Week events. The nine additional finalists will receive a $1,000 honorarium, and the schools of all 10 finalists will receive matching grants.
