A true story about one of our Jazz Band students and how she raised funds for the band

Here is a nice story.....

We have a Jazz Band member. She wanted to help raise funds for the band. So she set out to write letters to her family members and friends. She explained what the band does for her and why she loves being apart of The Eustis Mustang Band.

In return her family and friends sent in checks. Some were for $25 and some were for $100. These mostly came from people out of state that would not normally be at our concerts and such. These letters were written to those who could read her passion and not hear it.

The story is touching and we appreciate you Carolyn for being such a great role model. Exactly the attitude the Mustangs have! We are so lucky to have dedicated students in our program. Which has more than ten percent of the entire schools student body.
