This year seven years in and definitely some upgrades, we are proud to say we have given over 1000$ in scholarships and building awareness and the enrollment to Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We also believe this is the best month to continue our National Signing Day for Marching Bands Series. It’s a celebration when our young people get a key to enable their independence and we want to let this month be a huge party for us, our graduates, scholarship recipients, and future leaders of our world!
