“It helps fund the instrument repairs,” Shelley Guevara, a parent, told WBNC News. “It helps to alleviate some of the costs of the trips, and other things that the Band Boosters get to help the students out with.”
Lorna Mills, a student, also spoke with us about what she plans to do after school, and how Northern has helped her. “Northern has shaped me tremendously… and I really thank them for that”
The fundraiser was another good example of students supporting the school and a program that gives them so much in return.
