“Laradon’s Alternative School Music Program provides weekly instruction on musical instruments and musical academics to all of the students in the school,” wrote Mr. Yanel in his application. “The students in my class respond positively to drums and playing instruments in a group will improve their communication, social and motor skills.” The funds will be used to purchase new musical instruments for the music program, including drums, accordions and ukuleles.

“PACE is excited every year to award scholarships and grants to such worthy recipients,” stated membership director Charity Smith. “We are so grateful for Colorado’s dedicated educators, and students will benefit the most as these teachers receive new resources for the classroom.”
