For the last three years, the Summit Winds Band has placed first in the class 5A state competition. The parent run non-profit organization is trying to ensure the inclusion of every student despite their financial situations.
The Summit High School student body president, Royce Gist says, “We are not a band unless everyone can participate. Friends of Music make it possible for every student to participate.” Gist is in both the Summit Winds Band and the Skyliner Jazz Choir Group.
