The Mockingbird Foundation is proud to announce a new program recognizing key supporters of its core mission through a new annual process.
Many people beyond the Foundation's formal structure invest significant time, care, and effort into building and improving the Foundation's intellectual property, services, relationships, and grant funds. They have coordinated or administered events for the Foundation, represented the Foundation in some official capacity, or otherwise helped fulfill the Foundation's mission in some exceptional manner. As an all volunteer organization, these individuals provide critical, direct or indirect support of our greater goal: the furthering of music and arts education for children.
In recognition of past work on behalf of or to benefit the Foundation, the board will identify Mockingbird Ambassadors each November. The longterm intent is to identify perhaps five such Ambassadors each year. However, the inaugural cohort is a larger group, of ten individuals each overdue for a public expression of our appreciation, debt, and support.
The 2015 Mockingbird Ambassadors are:
- Stephen Blackstone (@steveb3210)
- John Demeter (@johnnyd)
- Brian Feller (@multibeast)
- Kat Griffin (@katmama)
- Philip Harrison (@Dog_Faced_Boy)
- Kevin Lambert (@joonze)
- Scott Marks (@Bizarro_Jerry)
- Pete Mason (@phanart)
- Steve Paolini (@lumpblockclod)
- Tim Wade (@TheEmu)
It is our honor to have each of them serve as Mockingbird Ambassadors for 2015.
