I want to take this time to thank each of you for all the support given this year! Without the troupe presidents, sponsors and your troupe members we would not have been able to break all the records we have in a matter of 10 months. I also want to personally thank each of you for allowing me to come into your lives, schools and wallets to raise money for this organization. As a graduating senior the thought of not working with this amazing District does bring a tear to my eye, but I am happy to say that the tear does not drop that far. I am very happy to say that I will be staying as your District 8 Broadway Cares Representative for the 2017-2018 school year! You thought you can get rid of me that easy?
