3/12/2020 - Celebrating Music Teacher Appreciation Day in Sedalia, Missouri
On Monday, March 9, 2020, Mayor John Kehde (pictured left) joined his grandson, Edson Kehde, along with Edson's music teacher, Justin Lawson, (pictured right) to announce Music Teacher Appreciation Day for Sedalia, Missouri to be held this Thursday, March 12, 2020. Sedalia is fortunate to have so many talented, dedicated music teachers within our community. Justin provides private music lessons through Wilkens Music and also organizes Sedalia's yearly event, Making the Band.
In 2019, Mayor Kehde proclaimed March 12th as Music Teacher Appreciation Day for Sedalia in honor of the late Jordan Ali Halane, a Sedalia native and beloved music teacher. In celebration of our treasured music educators, we encourage you to post a picture to social media on March 12th with a music teacher who has inspired you, either past or present, with the hashtags #MTAD2020, #SedaliaMusicTeachers, and #MusicTeacherAppreciationDay. Let’s send our Sedalia music teachers some love!
