NEMPAC’s Sherri Snow Named Finalist for SPARK Impact Award

nempac-logo_multicolorEach year, Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston celebrate the millennial contribution to our city with the Annual SPARK Impact Awards. Executive Director of the North End Music and Performing Arts Center, Sherri Snow, has been selected as a finalist in the category of Community Building and Neighborhood Improvement.

Sherri Snow has been leading arts and cultural programming in the North End now for 6 years. She started her work at NEMPAC as the Private Music Instruction Coordinator and Voice Teacher and in February of 2013 took on the role of Executive Director. Under her leadership, the organization has grown to serve thousands in our community through quality, accessible music, arts and cultural programming. She founded programs like the Music Theatre Troupe, the NEMPAC Opera Project, the Annual Concert Series Events (both summer and winter), and continues to work with her staff to create new, innovative programming in the community.

Millennials make up nearly half the city’s work force and approximately 45 percent of eligible voters. They are an economic engine, adding $1 billion annually in goods and services to Boston. The Annual SPARK Impact Awards shine a spotlight on young adults doing outstanding work to improve the City of Boston.

This year’s award categories reflect the diversity of ways millennial residents embody the role of leader and changemaker. We received over a hundred nominations and chose a truly impressive slate of finalists, now it’s up to the SPARK Boston community to decide who wins!
