NYS Assemblyman Nader Sayegh Secures Funding for HRM’s K-12 Community Programming

On Friday, March 17, New York State Assemblyman Nader Sayegh (District 90) visited the Hudson River Museum and presented our Director and CEO Masha Turchinsky and staff with a $25,000 New York State Grant for K-12 community-based programming. The funding is part of a larger effort by the New York State Assembly to support and bolster the arts as a critical component of New York’s post-COVID-19 recovery.

“We are grateful to Assemblyman Nader Sayegh for his successful efforts on behalf of the Hudson River Museum and for believing in our mission to engage, inspire, and connect diverse communities through the power of the arts, sciences, and history,” said Director and CEO Masha Turchinsky. “This grant will provide critical resources for the HRM to present educational programs to school children throughout the region, helping them to develop skills in visual literacy, critical thinking, creative problem solving, communication, and collaboration.

Nader Sayegh stated: “As an educator, a parent, and a lifelong Yonkers resident, I know how important of a fixture the Hudson River Museum is in our community. Thanks to this additional funding from the State of New York, we can help ensure that this organization continues to thrive for the future enjoyment of all Yonkers residents and New Yorkers.”
