Mr. Wilson grew up in Burlington, NC, and attended Western Alamance High School where he was a proud member of the band. He began playing music at a young age and acquired a quick love for it. He spent 7 years participating in honor bands at the county and district levels. He received his Bachelor of Music Education degree from Appalachian State University where he participated in their marching band, trumpet choir, symphonic band and wind ensemble.
Every parent or guardian of a band student is a band booster. Our sole purpose is to support the Band Director, the students and the overall band programs at Walter Williams High School and, as it is an integral part, Turrentine Middle School through planning, volunteering, and funding. We purchase instruments, music, uniforms, and equipment. We provide an annual college scholarship to a deserving band student. We chaperone events, provide transportation to and from football games and other activities. We also plan fun events for the students including the annual awards picnic. We partner together to raise money to fund this supplement funding by working concessions stands, selling fruit and cookie dough, and carrying out other fundraising events.
