Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 will have the distinct honor of having all three high schools celebrated in performance at the 2022 Illinois Music Education Conference in Peoria next week.
In addition to the twenty Lincoln-Way individual qualifiers that were selected to perform in the state ensembles, 2022 will be the first time all District 210 schools will be represented in performance in their own right.
“It is truly a moment of pride for me as both ILMEA District 1 President and a Lincoln-Way music teacher to be part of such a monumental year for Lincoln-Way. To have all three schools showcased at our state conference speaks volumes of both the commitment to musical excellence of our Lincoln-Way students and staff as well as the support of our administration and booster organizations" states Stacy Williams-Jackson, Lincoln-Way Central music chairperson and orchestra director to six of the state participants.
