Kent Interim Superintendent Israel Vela supports the Kent Music4Life program saying “As a lifelong music enthusiast, I learned at an early age the importance of the arts. Specifically, I joined band in 7th grade and played the alto saxophone through high school. To this day, I enjoy reading music and playing my alto sax.”
