The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority has furthered its efforts to foster and promote art and music throughout the community with a recent donation of $52,000 to four metropolitan Nashville public schools near John C. Tune (JWN) in West Nashville.
“The authority strives to provide the Nashville Airports Experience to our passengers and partners, which includes a longtime commitment to fostering local students’ interest in the arts,” says Raul Regalado, president and CEO of MNAA. “The MNAA, along with generous community support, has contributed more than $282,000 to benefit Metro Nashville youth over the past five years. We are honored to play a role in encouraging our community’s students to expand their horizons through art and music education.”
Regalado and MNAA Board Chairman James H. Cheek presented the checks to H.G. Hill Middle School, Bellevue Middle School, Hillwood High School and Pearl-Cohn Comprehensive Business Magnet High School.
The money was raised during the MNAA’s 13th annual Aviation Classic Golf Tournament last year and will be used for musical instruments and art supplies.
The MNAA, with a dollar-for-dollar match with the Nashville Alliance for Public Education, has raised more than $282,000 for metropolitan Nashville arts programs over the past five years.
