I call myself the client served when really it is my child who is the client served but wht better way for me to be served but to have my child nurtured into a life of superior instruction, nurturance and teamwork. This band not only performs welkl together they have introduced my child to a young adluthood of responsibility, consideration, inspiration and commitment that will serve her all of her life. Not only have the experience band members encouraged my child but they have made an environment that intrigues me as a parent to HAVE to get involved and continue the tradition of strong character and community of giving back that keeps the world. Having more money to help support the hard work that is contributed by the members after their own long hard day would be the best way to support the foundation that keeps this heatbeat alive.

School budgets make it difficult or nearly impossible to keep arts programs, but the Athens Drive Arts Foundation ensures that the students at Athens Drive High School do not miss out on these opportunities. Dr. Markoch's enthusiasm is infectious, and the natural leadership development provides much more than music lessons. My child has gained many life skills, and the high achievements of his peers motivates him to push himself to greater heights. This program would not be possible without the help of the Athens Drive Arts Foundation.

Since it's very beginning, the Athens Drive Arts Foundation has been instrumental in assisting students of the arts to have a more complete and meaningful educational experience. Well deserving students have benefited from instruction and supplies that they would not have had access to without the support of ADAF. ADAF makes a significant contribution to the enrichment of the lives of all the students and families who receive their assistance. My children have experienced first hand how important ADAF is to their arts education - they have been able to learn from excellent instructors, have access to music and instruments, and compete and travel on a national level - none of which would have been possible without the support of ADAF.

This Foundation has defiantly helped define my high school career, Through the efforts of this foundation our band was able to do everything from marching down main street at Walt Disney world to going to weekly competitions all around the Carolinas. All of the wonderful things that we did, experiences i had and friendships i forged would definitively not be as strong as they were today if it had not been for this organization.
