HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV)-- Organizers with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts were thanked for their decision to partner with Harrisonburg.

Harrisonburg is only the 15th city. It's a long term education plan called 'any given child'.

Organizers locally hope it will include more students and spread resources to schools with kids who may not have as many resources.

"Spread maybe what you want your vision of the world to be, or maybe just like your emotions that you maybe couldn't express through words," said Abe Nouri, who graduated, from the Eastman School of Music.

People with the city, the local school system, and the Kennedy Center, came to Clementine's restaurant to explain the program. Workers will develop a plan for nine months to see where more arts resources are needed.

The school system must raise $25,000 with the Kennedy Center donating more than $100,000.

After speaking with the fine arts coordinator, it's too early to see if new teachers would be hired. But, that has been the case in some cities that have worked with the Kennedy Center.
