Posted on

Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School will be awarded the VMEA Blue Ribbon Award for the first time in school history! The Blue Ribbon is the highest award given to school music programs in the Commonwealth of Virginia and recognizes excellence achieved in band, orchestra, and choral performance.  All disciplines in a school must receive a rating of “Superior” at assessment to qualify for this award.  

Approximately 10% of Virginia schools receive this designation from the VMEA.

Congratulations to our teachers, Allison Barnes, Nicholas Merillat, and Kelsey Snyder, and to their students for their outstanding performances.
