Over 75 people gathered at the Adrian United Methodist Church on Monday, April 7 to participate in a conversation about the importance of music education in schools. Dr. Carla Jo Maltas, a Music Educator at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, spoke to the crowd of students (past and present), parents, teachers, the music boosters and others in the community. The conversation centered around how the community can best support the music program at Adrian R-3, which will have one music teacher for grades K-12 in the upcoming school year.
