Our Band Needs You

My students need radios. These radios will be used in class, on the practice field, and competitions during the school year to help the band. Please help our band. Thanks

My Students

Communication is a must. Without a sound system, it is difficult to communicate with the different band sections. 2 way radios will help solve this problem and make our time more productive.

Our students are awesome, they do a great job representing themselves, the school, and the community.

We are in the highest poverty county in Tennessee, but that does not stop our students from excelling. They work hard and it shows through their devotion to the program.

My Project

With the help of these radios, our students will be able to learn faster and more productively. The section leaders will be able to communicate more efficiently. With better communication comes better results. With better results comes more participation. More participation creates more individuals that love music.

Through your donation, you will be helping students become better band members, better marchers, and better communicators.

Your support will have a lasting affect on the lives of these students.
