NAMM will honor two SupportMusic champions, U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) and former New York Yankees star Bernie Williams at two separate events taking place during the NAMM Advocacy Fly-In in Washington, D.C.
Scott will be honored during a dinner on May 21, while Williams will be honored during a dinner on May 22. Scott, representative for Virginia’s third district, assumed office in January 1993. He was a key proponent of the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act.
Since his retirement from the Yankees, Williams, an avid musician, has long advocated for the MI industry, appearing several times at the NAMM Advocacy Fly-In, as well numerous NAMM Shows and other industry events.
