The lifeblood of any organization is its ability to pass on to others its' hopes, dreams, and aspirations. These must be passed on for it to survive and thrive. -Anonymous
I am so grateful for the love, dedication, and tremendous support G.L.A.M., Inc and the NANM Organization gave me throughout my teenage, college, and graduate school years. You not only provided scholarship funds which helped me in college, but you continued to mentor and encourage me and provide me with opportunities to perform for the community, as well as represent the Georgia Laster Branch in three national competitions where I won First and Third Place Honors in Violin and Voice. I truly feel like a member of the Georgia Laster Family. Thank you for your continuous support and guidance, which you've given to me and all young musicians, in helping us pursue our goals.

I’m overwhelmed by the support and kindness of both G.L.A.M., Inc., and NANM. Because of their generous scholarship fund, I was able to attend the international music festival in Germany and was selected as a soloist and concertmaster of the festival orchestra. I’m so proud and honored to be associated with G.L.A.M., Inc!
The Georgia Laster Branch of NANM has helped me in so many ways. Not only did they provide a platform for me to perform, but the funds that I won from competitions greatly helped me to attend different music programs including the Meadowmount School of Music in New York. Furthermore, NANM provided an environment in which I could see and learn from other talented and dedicated performers- each time inspiring me and pushing me even more to be better the following year.
G.L.A.M., Inc. has helped me tremendously in my endeavors as a musician. It has given me the confidence to share my talents with the community and has let me know that there is still hope out there for the arts. The aid I received from both G.L.A.M., Inc and NANM is much appreciated, and cannot be taken for granted, as some young musicians are discouraged from having a career in music, due to the lack of funds and support. Thank you so much for all the support and guidance you have given me.
G.L.A.M., Inc. provided me with scholarship funds to aid my musical studies. and at the age of 22, I earned a BA in Music Business and Management and a Masters's Degree in Flute Performance. More importantly, GLAM., Inc. and NANM have created a safe and supportive community for many young musicians and continue to do so.

G.L.A.M., Inc. has helped me largely
in preparing myself for my years in college. They helped me establish and build a college fund to prepare myself for future competitions and learn how to handle myself professionally in front of an audience. Thank You for your amazing support.
