The Carver High School jazz band program received a $3,500 scholarship from the City of Houston Mayor’s Office. As a recipient, the group was invited to attend the Mayor’s Jazz Brunch presented by AT&T at the Hobby Center in August.
The brunch focused on celebrating the city’s rich culture and diverse music history. The event also served to raise funds for student scholarships to further their musical education.
During the brunch, Mayor Sylvester Turner announced that Houston is set to host its first Houston Jazz Festival in fall 2019. The festival will invite jazz and blues performers from around the world.
Other sponsors of the brunch included H-E-B, Verizon, Texas Southern University, KTSU, Houston Airports (Houston Bush Airport and Hobby Airport), Bayway Lincoln and Cigna.
Dr. Sara Ptomey made the scholarship announcement during the AISD Board of Trustees meeting held Sept. 18. Ptomey is the assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction.
