Hello and thanks to anyone reading this post. Ever since my child was accepted to Juilliard – YES, JUILLIARD! – I have been telling everyone. By everyone, I mean family, friends, enemies, strangers, small children…anyone who has not physically threatened my life. While the excitement burns brightly on the front burner, we all know the reality of cost is simmering on the back burner.
The amount on the meter is real, along with the struggle. If you want a clown off the streets and into college – JUILLIARD – please donate. I’m not going to give you a sad story. You can look at the picture and see that this clown doesn’t have $25K. He is working this summer and producing two plays before school starts this fall to raise as much money as possible. Please support him by attending one or both of the plays. I will post information on show times when it becomes available. You can also donate money and provide moral support/encouraging words here.
On behalf of my son, Julian Robertson, I thank you.

- A local news program featured Julian in a story about the 2016 College Signing Day. Please note that the feature mentions "full ride". I sure did. After laughing profusely, I thought this would we a great opportunity to clarify for the many students who may be feeling less than.
"Full Ride" + $80,000 = Cost of College
Please enjoy the segment and be sure to laugh everytime you hear "full ride".http://www.news4jax.com/education/college-signing-day/douglas-anderson-students-celebrate-on-college-signing-day
