Former Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling has agreed to serve as president of the Edmonds School District Music4Life Booster Club.

Earling founded the instrumental music program at Shoreline Community College, growing the program from 34 concert band students to about 200 during his tenure.

Joining Earling on the Edmonds Booster Club will be Admiral Bill Center, US Navy Ret. and 2006-07 President of Seattle Downtown Rotary. They will be assisted in their new duties by Ken Noreen and Dennis Ashbrook, two  instrumental music educators now retired from Shoreline Public Schools.

A non-profit organization, Music4Life provides instruments to students who are interested in music but may be unable to purchase or rent an instrument.

  1. Congratulations to Dave Earling and especially to Music4Life for Dave being it’s new President. His enthusiasm for music and it’s future in the lives of students will prove to be a success.

  2. Probably not very many in Edmonds know Bill Center, but I do. I worked with Bill for several years after his retirement from the navy and I know him to be extremely capable.

  3. Both Dave and Bill are great additions to the leadership of the ESD Music4Life booster club. Their organizational skills and dedication to our community are legendary. And their contribution to the ESD’s music programs is both important and instrumental (please forgive the pun).

    Congrats and thanks to you both for your continued service to the arts and our community.
