Boardman Jazz Ensemble 2 was awarded the 2020 Pinwheels for Prevention Community Spotlight Award, celebrated in the month of April.
Jazz 2 has played at the Pinwheels for Prevention event for 9 years during Child Abuse Awareness month. The students in the group have been moved by the emotional speeches given by guests and past award-winners. We are such a big part of the event that they schedule it around our availability!
We would have been presented the award at last year's ceremony had it not been canceled by the pandemic. This year's event will be virtual and in the form of several televised public service announcements and spots on WKBN's 11:00 PM newscast on Mondays through April.
We are honored to receive this special award!
