“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.
