2021 MTNA Foundation Fellow
This year, WSMTA is delighted to announce that Laurie Eash, NCTM has been confirmed as the Music Teachers National Association Foundation Fellow from Washington State for 2021.
This is an incredible, national honor, given to “deserving individuals who have made significant contributions to the music world and the music teaching profession.” The award was given in March, 2021, at the now-virtual MTNA national conference. (It was originally to have been held in Atlanta, Georgia.)
To celebrate each fellowship, charitable contributions are being given to the MTNA foundation fund. Money in this fund helps to pay for the MTNA competitions, and for student scholarships. The nomination is confirmed when $1,500 is raised in each honoree’s name. After the award is given, a letter detailing the names of their donors is sent to each of them, so they will be able to thank all those who supported their nominations.
