Review for Athens Drive Arts Foundation, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Athens Drive Arts Foundation (ADAF) has been a tremendous asset to the music program at Athens Drive High School. ADAF has supported and enhanced the band program by providing more instructors and instruments and distributing scholarships to needy students. The fundraisers have given parents and alumni a chance to reconnect with current members and contribute toward the ongoing success.

It was our pleasure as a family to be involved with the band at ADHS for seven years. My children were given leadership opportunities that played a key role in their character development during high school. The great thing about the band program is that the students aren't just taught to be excellent musicians; they are also shown how to be people of character and compassion.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the numerous concerts, competitions, festivals, and football games my children participated in during their high school years. Even though my son and daughter graduated in 2005 and 2008, I stil keep up with the band emails and attend events whenver possible. It's exciting to see how this excellent program continues to grow and flourish!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see more corporate involvement and financial support.

Role:  Volunteer & I was a Board member of ADAF, serving as liaison between ADAF and the ADHS Band Boosters while I was Band Booster Co-President.
