In 2015 the Flying Musicians Association created a program whereby band directors nominate a junior or senior band member who excels and has a desire to fly.
Five outstanding finalists were selected from the nominees. Texas, Illinois, Georgia and Florida were well represented. The hardest part was awarding just one scholarship.
The winner of the inaugural FMA Solo Program scholarship is Drew Medina from Vero Beach, Florida. Drew will be starting his senior year at Vero Beach High School as Band captain under the direction of James M. Sammons.
