Hard Work Pays Off

Today I drove two hours south to Adrian, Michigan to visit Adrian College. I spent the day with Dr. Marty Marks and he showed me around the campus. I also had my audition, which I got really stressed about last night because of my dad, but Dr. Marks wound up making it much less stressful and I wound up doing fairly decent. The Lord sure had my back on this one! When I was preparing I was thinking how bad I sounded and that there was no way I could prepare a piece in two days…but I did it!

I got offered a $9,000 scholarship for the trumpet and $7,000 per year (totaling to $35 over the 5 years of school). This makes me so excited! If I can get FAFSA all figured out I will most definitely be attending Adrian College in the fall.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and wishes! I really appreciate all of you guys.

P.S. Not only am I going into music, but I don’t have to quit marching band because Adrian has a marching band. I’m so excited!
