I would like to respond to the the letter of April 4 about the cutting of the band and athletic budgets. I have been a member of the FHS Band Boosters for the last three years with one more year to go.
I do agree with what are the Board of Education priorities. The way I see it they have a tough decision to make on where cuts are since there have been cuts in the state of N.C. as a whole. I can not speak about the athletics’ budget but I do have knowledge of the band’s budget from the BOE. The band’s budget covered by the BOE is the salary of the director/ teacher. Not only does he teach band but he also teaches drama.
