THE SESSIONS "JOE HIBBS" AWARD
Hit Like A Girl and The Sessions are proud to announce that Jolene Roponus has been selected as the recipient of the 2023 Joe Hibbs Award.
Created in honor of drum industry veteran, Joe Hibbs, the $500 grant is awarded each year to the Hit Like A Girl contest participant who demonstrates the highest levels of dedication, ambition and passion— the values that Joe possessed and made him such a positive influence on the drumming community and so respected by the people he worked with.
“This award is a way for us to honor Joe and empower more girls to follow their dreams,” explains The Sessions founder, Jules Follett.
Jolene is a 9-year old girl from the south Pacific island of Tahiti whose natural ability and infectious smile represent the great things that will come from the next generation of drummers.
