Charleston Southern NAfME student representative

By Jenna Johnson | April 18, 2024

The annual National Association for Music Education Collegiate Leadership Advocacy Summit (CLAS) is an exciting multiday event from June 10th to June 12th that brings together NAfME Collegiate members from across the nation for leadership learning sessions, advocacy training, and professional networking in Washington, D.C. As part of the 2024 National Leadership Assembly, NAfME leaders and advocates will be attending an invitation-only Capitol Hill event on Wednesday, June 12th. Attendees will meet with congressional representatives and staffers to share their story alongside NAfME leaders in their states on behalf of music education at the federal level.

In 2024, one of the two chosen collegiate students representing South Carolina is Allie Dombkowski, a junior at Charleston Southern University studying Music Education. Dombkowski entered the Horton School of Music and Performing Arts as a non-traditional student in Fall of 2022 and has since made her presence known in the music community. She currently serves as the secretary of the Collegiate National Association for Music Education’s Chapter 751, a program that aims to raise music education awareness on campus. Dombkowski is a part of CSU’s Concert Singers and Bel Canto choirs as the lead alto. She’s also been an integral part of the staff for Charleston Southern University’s Summer Music Camp.

Overall, this tremendous opportunity is a huge honor and will be an excellent chance to spread recognition for the Horton School of Music and Performing Arts at Charleston Southern University! We are so grateful to have Allie represent CSU with NAfME in our nation’s capital.
