THS musicians to benefit from Mirror fund-raiser
Newspaper to donate to students’ trip fund
Music students at Tonganoxie Junior High School and High School kick off a fund-raising activity today.
The students, who are raising money for upcoming trips with the band or choir, are selling subscriptions to The Mirror newspaper of Tonganoxie and to the Lawrence Journal-World.
In turn, the newspapers will donate funds to the music program to help students finance trips.
The Mirror will donate $5 for every one-year subscription that the students sell, while the Journal-World will donate $10 for every 14-week subscription that the students sell.
"I know that the Marching Chieftains had a great time on their trip in January to the Cotton Bowl," said Caroline Trowbridge, editor and publisher of The Mirror.
"And that's why we've agreed to help all junior high and high school music students. Taking trips can be expensive, but I know how rewarding those trips can be. It's so exciting when you're a member of a talented musical group and you're able to represent your school and your community in such a positive way."
The fund-raiser will continue through April 25.
