I have heard for years about this program but I always thought they helped kids "somewhere else." Recently they donated $38,000 worth of band equipment to a school in Griffithsville, West Virginia. I think it was the junior high school.
The junior high band is now bigger than the band at the Lincoln County High School where these kids will go when they go to the 9th. grade. The high school is a combination of many junior high schools in the county.
Thank you to VH-1 for fostering an interest in music in a very rural school in West Virginia. Who knows what it will lead to.
