Earn Cash Using Your Musical Talent in College and Beyond Seminar

"Dr. Lacefield will be presenting a workshop at Eaton High School in the orchestra room on how to earn money using your musical talents after high school. The event is geared towards NISD band, choir, and orchestra students and parents as they plan their post high school journey. Dr. Lacefield will present opportunities for students to use their musical skills to earn scholarships and additional money in college and beyond. The ultimate goal is for NISD students to leave the workshop with a plan to leverage their love of music to help them graduate college debt free, and turn their love of music into primary and supplemental income for a lifetime."
