Hello, my name is Elijah Stinnett. I am 14 years old and I am going to be a freshman at Trinity High School. When I was in middle school in JCPS I learned to play the saxophone and was in my school band for 3 years. I really like playing and like being involved in a band. When I chose Trinity as my school of choice for high school I signed up for their band. We were told at registration that I will have to have my own instrument. It is also a requirement of every student to have their own laptop. I am really excited about going to Trinity and being in their music program but I know it is also going to be putting a lot of pressure on my mother financially. She has a lot of things on her plate as a full time student. She has already committed to paying the tuition but I would like to make it easier on her and not have to worry her with more costs. If I could get a saxophone and a basic laptop I know that would be a relief for her and a help to me.
