On Tuesday, December 9, 2014, Movado (a brand long identified with Modernism and closely associated with the performing arts) hosted the Turn 2 Foundation's "Jeter's Leaders" to a spectacular evening where the high school students in the program experienced the six-time Tony Award winning Broadway musical, The Lion King

The Leaders also attended a pre-performance reception at Movado's NYC Corporate Offices where Yvette L. Campbell, President and CEO of The Harlem School of the Arts (HSA), and Aubrey Lynch, former Lion King Producer and Director of Dance at HSA, conducted a special presentation on the importance and impact of arts and culture on society. 

HSA alumnus Caleb McLaughlin, the multi-talented thirteen-year-old actor who played Young Simba in The Lion King on Broadway for two years, also participated in the presentation.

"Fostering academic achievement is a cornerstone of the Turn 2 Foundation, and I believe the arts and cultural engagement are key to that," said Derek Jeter. "I thank Movado and The Harlem School of the Arts for their commitment to the mission of the Turn 2 Foundation and for enriching the lives of our Jeter's Leaders."

The Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) is one of New York City's pioneering arts institutions that enriches the lives of young people through world-class training in and exposure to the arts. The school was founded in 1964 by world-renowned soprano Dorothy Maynor in a local church with twelve neighborhood children in attendance. Since then, HSA has grown dramatically and now enriches the lives of nearly 4,000 students annually, onsite at the Herb Alpert Center and offsite through partnerships with New York City schools, providing beginning to advanced instruction in Dance, Music, Theatre, and the Visual Arts to students ranging from preschoolers to young adults. Harlem School of the Arts envisions a world where ALL children have access to a quality arts education, empowering them to become the creative thinkers and innovative leaders of tomorrow.

The Turn 2 Foundation was established by baseball legend Derek Jeter in 1996 and is managed by his sister Sharlee Jeter who serves as the organization's President. The Foundation promotes healthy lifestyles, academic achievement and social change activism among high school students. For more information, visit www.turn2foundation.org.
