HUDSON COUNTY -- Three teachers from Hudson County schools are among a total of 222 music teachers nationwide that have been announced as quarterfinalists for the Music Educator Award presented by The Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation. These were selected from 7,000 nominations.

Sean Gavarny of Hoboken Charter School in Hoboken, Anthony Good of Nicholas Oresko School in Bayonne, and John Flora of Franklin L Williams Middle School No. 7 in Jersey City will are among the quarter finalists.

The Music Educator Award was established to recognize current educators (K – college, public and private schools) who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education and who demonstrate a commitment to the broader cause of maintaining music education in the schools. A joint partnership and presentation of The Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Foundation, this special award will be presented at the Special Merit Awards Ceremony (honoring recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award, Trustees Award and Technical GRAMMY® Award) during GRAMMY Week 2015. The semifinalists will be announced in September. – By Al Sullivan
