Education News

In West Louisville on South 28th street there’s a blue house, walk past it and you’ll hear the faint sound of violins. Go in and you’ll find a Suzuki after school program that’s giving kids a positive activity with clear benefits to their grades and success. But that’s a first glance. Ask a few questions and you’ll quickly learn how deeply important this program is to the individuals involved and their community- just as music should be. I’ll let them speak for themselves.

Here are teachers, students, and parents involved in the West End Talent Education Center, also known as WESTEC.
