In addition, he was a member of the Drumline for the Band. Trever said in his essay, “My awareness of who I need to be as a productive member of society was enhanced because of childhood experiences, including participating as a young student every summer in Broadway Bound Summer Camp. With the confidence gained in Broadway Bound, I also auditioned for the lead tenor in my school’s competitive choir, where I earned the role all four years. If awarded the GWCA Scholarship, I will have the opportunity and financial assistance to achieve my goals while pursuing higher education.”
