The Greenville High School Lion Pride Band has recently raised $1604.75 to donate to Greenville CASA. The donation will be made during the bands Holiday Concert on Thurs., Dec. 18th at 7 p.m.
"Last year, we helped 5 of the CASA kids have a brighter holiday season by providing all the gifts on their 'wish' lists, and we presented them to Debbie Driggers on the night of our concert." said GHS band director, Joel Weisberg. "This year," he continued, "our BLT (Band Leadership Team) wanted to 'up' our commitment and try to help 15 students. With our immediate alumni, and the open hearts of our band members, we collected $1604.75 to purchase gifts for 15 kids."
On November 12, Mr. Tidwell was notified that TMEA had accepted his application and awarded the GMS 'Lion Pride' Band a grant in the amount of $980.00. This represents the amount of 16 UIL selections Mr. Tidwell hand-selected and requested from the State UIL Prescribed Music List.
