13 Tioga band seniors receive scholarships from local colleges
After years of dedication to the band, 13 Tioga High School seniors received band scholarships to Louisiana colleges and universities.
On Tuesday the school held a signing ceremony to celebrate their accomplishments with the community.
Students signed with Louisiana College, McNeese, Louisiana Tech, University of Louisiana Monroe and Northwestern State University.
Estimated scholarship totals for all four years ranged from $26,000 to $103,000.
Tioga also invited younger students to witness the signing and get an opportunity to talk with the visiting college band directors.
"I am so thankful and happy to see that these students are excelling well in academics and that they are able to get these scholarships for music and leadership," said Band Director Ty Lege. "And they are able to go to college for less money than it would cost them out of pocket."
This was the school's second annual band scholarship signing and they look forward to many more.
