Scotty McCreery is the Goodwill Ambassador for the 12.14 Foundation in Newtown, CT
On Monday, it was revealed that Scotty McCreery had joined the 12.14 Foundation as their Goodwill Ambassador.
The 12.14 Foundation uses arts as a healing mechanism in the wake of the horrific shooting tragedy which occurred in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012.
As the foundation's first "National Goodwill Ambassador.” McCreery will play an active role in promoting the foundation’s arts programming, supporting its fundraising efforts, and building awareness for the organization’s plans to build a world-class performing arts and education center in Newtown. McCreery, who visited with families and school children in Newtown on December 12, 2013, just two days before the first anniversary of the tragedy, is internationally recognized as the winner of Season 10 of American Idol and who has since become one of the top new artists on the country music landscape.
