Verna Hayes

  • Teachers William and Verna Hayes turned their vocation into their passion. Identifying a void in Ypsilanti, a school district absent of an orchestra program, Bill and Verna stepped up to start the Ypsilanti Youth Orchestra and began changing lives. They will be honored with an Outstanding Service Medal on February 27 at THE pARTy!, Creative Washtenaw’s signature benefit event. Bill and Verna join "creative:impact" host Deb Polich.
