HARVARD — The two dozen Cardinal and Black Singers wouldn't be singing and dancing their way through "Baby, It's Cold Outside" if not for Blake Thompson.

Thompson, director of music activities for Harvard Public Schools, recently was named recipient of the 2013 Nebraska Music Educators Association Outstanding Young Music Educator Award. He will be recognized at the annual NMEA awards banquet Friday.

The award is given to music educators in their third through seventh year of teaching.
