We are pleased to inform that the $25,000 match for the funds appropriated by the 2018 Iowa legislature has been raised and funding for the mentoring program is secure for remainder of the current school year.  I would like thank everyone for your tremendous support in this endeavor. 

We had a mentor and mentee pair (Paul Brizzi-Rachel Sullivan) take part of our annual Arts Advocacy Day at the State Capitol last week.  They were able to speak to the leaders of both the Iowa House & Senate and the Senate Education Committee about the benefits of the mentoring program.  They were very well received and the legislators were very supportive of this program.  We will keep you informed as things progress during the 2019 legislative session.

Your support of arts education in our state is greatly appreciated!
