FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- For the 14th year in a row, the Fulton County School System has been named a Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation.

Fulton County is one of only two districts in the country to make the list for each of its 14 years.

"We are proud to have music programs that showcase the immense talent of our students and staff and that are heavily supported by the community," superintendent Dr. Robert Avossa said in a statement.

This school year, three Fulton schools -- Alpharetta High, Chattahoochee High and Johns Creek High -- participated in the prestigious Midwest Clinic in Chicago.

Northview High and Roswell High each performed at the Georgia Music Educators Association's annual conference, while a group from Tri-Cities High played at the WorldStrides Heritage Inaugural Music Festival held during the 2013 Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C.

"These achievements are just a few examples of why Fulton County is continually named among the Best Communities for Music Education," Avossa said.

The NAMM Foundation is a not-for-profit association representing the musical instruments and products industry. It chose 307 school districts across the U.S. as the Best Communities for Music Education.
