SCKMEA statement concerning audition conflict - Nov. 8, 2014
Welcome to another school year and the excitement and energy that each new year brings with it!

The Executive Board of the Kansas Music Educators Association - South Central District is diligently working and planning for our fall events. This year's list of clinicians represents the finest in music education and I am excited to see these educators work with our students.

If you have not already noticed, SCKMEA has a new website! Special thanks goes to Troy Johnson for designing and maintaining our website. I encourage you to explore our new site to gather the necessary information for each event. As always, if you have any questions please contact the appropriate chairperson or myself.

Finally, each year the South Central District of the Kansas Music Educators Association recognizes music teachers at the Elementary, Middle, and High School levels for the outstanding and remarkable work they do for their students, schools and communities. We all know teachers who are passionate about music and are extraordinary in their field. Take this opportunity to nominate them for this exceptional honor! New this year, SCKMEA will accept nominations for an Outstanding Administrator Award! Does your administrator go above and beyond to support music and the arts in your community? If so, take this opportunity to nominate him or her to receive the recognition they deserve.

Please use the link located just below this letter to nominate an outstanding music teacher and/or administrator.

I look forward to seeing you at one or more of our fall events. Best wishes for a successful school year!
