Dayton, Ohio – Elizabeth Lolli, the superintendent of the Dayton Public Schools, has received the Save The Music Foundation Award For Distinguished Support Of Music Education.
Each year, the award is given to a superintendent or school district CEO from throughout the country who has shown an exceptional dedication to restoring music education in their school system.
In a press statement, Lolli expressed her gratitude, saying she was honored that the district’s efforts had been acknowledged.
“Giving students the opportunity to be actively involved in playing instruments, singing, and taking part in other aspects of music education is truly invaluable to their overall success,” Lolli said in a release.
Save the Music and Dayton Public Schools teamed up in 2019 to start a music education project in all of the district’s schools.
According to a press statement from the Save The Music Foundation, “Superintendent Lolli has been a champion of music education for all students in Dayton.”
The release states that in the three districts where Lolli has previously served, she has also improved financing and support for the band, choir, general music programs, and staff professional development.
