Taylor Hawkins shows support for Riverside Central at St. Paul concert
The Foo Fighters were in St. Paul over the weekend — and drummer Taylor Hawkins used the opportunity to rep Rochester's own Riverside Central Elementary School.
Hawkins has been involved as a mentor for Riverside students through the Turnaround Arts program. His most recent visit to the school came back in May of this year.
"[Coming to Riverside] inspires me, and not just as a musician, but as a person," he told us at the time.
Turnaround Arts is a program from the Kennedy Center that “empowers high-need, low-performing schools with arts resources… as a strategy to address broad school challenges and turn around struggling schools.”
