Daily Journal article about 2 students getting college scholarship money

Thankful for these 2 students getting a chance to get some college scholarship money! We had some wonderful sponsors for the Dave Dickey Big Band Christmas concert last December at the Centene Center and they chipped in extra money for these students! These 2 North County HS students performed with The North County Jazz Ensemble during intermission, then the last set they sat in with my Dave Dickey Big Band. Thank you to Paula Michelle Franks, Terri Ann Pankhurst, Dobie Carroll, Emily Ries, and everyone who helped put that concert together. Looking forward to doing more concerts there and giving college scholarships to students!  To read the article, click this link https://dailyjournalonline.com/news/local/education/christmas-in-march/article_13ab2ef2-e028-5bdf-b4c6-61722044c737.html?utm_campaign=snd-autopilot&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook_Daily_Journal_Online&fbclid=IwAR0rVTyP8zAOum9BNZTadfpp4pFZdZD5JSuNg5Qe5l_JNbEJVttMc8mhgsI
