Another Bronx Hero Gains Much-Deserved Attention

Congratulations to Bronx music teacher, Ms. Melissa Salguero, whose boundless efforts recently earned her a Grammy.

Ms.Salguero is an elementary School teacher at Joseph R. Drake Elementary School in Hunts Point, less than five miles from our Bronx office. When Ms.Salguero started at the school seven years ago there wasn’t a music program in place, in fact there hadn’t been a music program for 30 years. Thanks to her dedication to her students and the Bronx community, the school now has an innovative and impactful music program.

We salute you, Ms.Salguero on your well-earned honor! Learn more about other Bronx heroes.
