Youth Art Month 2013

Youth Art Month exhibitors have their photographs taken with State Supt. Glenda Ritz.
There was a huge crowd of students, parents and teachers at the State House today. Guest speaker Indiana Supt. of Education Glenda Ritz received several ovations from the crowd as she read a proclimation confirming the importance of music and art learning experiences for Indiana school children. My sincerest thanks to all the parents and family members who accompanied their students to the event.
The North Atrium was packed wall to wall.
I felt especially gratified when Supt. Ritz noted during her keynote: "Indiana K-12 music and art programs are valued and will be supported." 
It is with the deepest gratitude that I thank AEAI President Sidney Allen,, AEAI President Elect Bev Staub, YAM Co-Chairs Allie Staub and Mindy Hiatt for their tremendous efforts and all of the AEAI volunteers who came out to make this event one of the best YAM events ever.
