"I am grateful to KCYA for this acknowledgement of the work.  More importantly, I am grateful that they have been a tireless advocate for arts integration in schools throughout the metro area.  Seeing the "a-ha moment" when a student connects to math or science through an art form is the greatest reward possible." -Larry Greer



"The arts are so important for all of us! I love watching the spark that ignites when students learn about history or a concept through the arts, or when they take in a music or puppet performance. The arts affect us in a way that nothing else can and I have really enjoyed making sure our students get those opportunities." - Megan Davolt
