WANT TO MAKE A STATEMENT?? To all of the wonderful people who have donated to the TALADEGA HS BAND and to those who are still donating: This band had the good fortune to be on FOXNEWS, but there are other bands who are going and who are also needing help to get to DC. If you TRULY want to make a statement about the racism in this country, please help the TUPELO HS BAND at gofundme tupelo-hs-band-inauguration-parade. Just think how impressive it would be to this nation to help some of these other young adults. PLEASE ALSO HELP TUPELO! Tupelo High School is the only public high school in Tupelo, Mississippi. The campus consists of fourteen buildings, including a Performing Arts Center, separate buildings for social studies, English, math, sciences, and fine arts as well there is also a self-contained grade-9 building. The current student population of the school is about 1,995. As of 2014-2015, it is the largest enrolled public high school in the state of Mississippi. The class of 2015 consisted of 438 graduates. The school offers a curriculum containing 160 Carnegie units, 24 of which are Advanced Placement. Tupelo High School is a two-time National Blue Ribbon School award winner, having won the award in 1983-1984 and again in 1999-2000

Even though they have met goal, I think that they are still accepting donations. I think that any extra money can be put to good use. I am so excited that they will be able to play at the inauguration!
