2024 Spring Grants for Cherryville High School

Band Revitalization $31,625

The CHS band is a vital part of the high school and the Cherryville community. They actively support the athletic programs, as well as participate in competitions and community events. In many ways, the band is the face of CHS and Cherryville wherever they go. Recruitment is in full force and the band is expected to possibly double in size for the 2024-2025 school year. The final step to revitalization is to provide equipment and instruments for the band program that allow them to showcase their talents, compete with other bands, and provide support to the community throughout the year. These basic needs are essential to keep the CHS band program moving forward in a positive direction.
