“I just wanted to give you an update on your first recipient! He’s in symphonic band at Stafford Middle School, AND he performs with Jack Yates High School Band!  He is having a great time, and is learning so much! Yates is now class 3-A, which allows a middle schooler to perform on the field! The music programs in the surrounding schools have sadly shut down, leaving so many students without an outlet for their talents until [they reach] high school.”
