Most of the instruments Thunder Ridge owned for the music program were old, broken and in need of constant repair. Thanks to a community foundation grant, the school district was able to purchase new instruments for the program.
"Jacob (pictured right) was so excited when he saw the new tuba. In fact, he is usually more excited about singing in choir, but that day he just wanted to play in the band," said grantee Annie Adams. "The first day we had rehearsal with the new tuba, the sound was AMAZING! The students noticed a difference and everyone was excited."
