JazzPowerON Congratulating the class of 2020!
KUDOS to the class of 2020! Congratulations to all the college graduates who have completed your studies this week. We celebrate with you all you have accomplished!
For us at Jazz Power Initiative, we send a special congratulations to Jonathan Hernandez-Jimenez (above left). Jonathan started with Jazz Power as a 10th grader at Eagle Academy for Young Men in Brooklyn and he went on to earn a full scholarship to attend NYU. This week, Jonathan is graduating from NYU with a degree in Music Business and we are very excited that he has joined our part-time staff as a production assistant, beginning his professional career in the arts. Please join me in congratulating Jonathan and all of this year’s graduating class. Bravo to the class of 2020!
Our youth continue to dance in week 8 of Jazz Power ON Youth and their spirit uplifts us all…
