Sound Bites From the Podcast

“We definitely want to be able to give all the students that are connected with HBCUs just more opportunities, more career opportunities, just so they can be happy in their field.” - Thomas Warner Jr.

“This year, we have a new president, and we'll be starting a marching band. And this will be the first that there's been a marching band. It took 27 years to finally, for them to understand what it would take.” - Roxanne Stevenson

“At North Carolina A&T, we were just nominated number-one marching band in the country. If you want to participate in the marching band, you must participate in at least one of the large ensembles. You have to be a part of a spring ensemble to enhance your musicality.” - Thomas Warner Jr.
