2022 Reception (POSTPONED UNTIL APRIL) - F.A.M.E. is grateful to the consistent and generous support provided by ServisFirst Bank. ServisFirst will again host a reception and cocktail party to celebrate the construction of BTW's new campus on Bell Road at the bank's downtown Montgomery location:  1 Commerce Street, Montgomery.  

 

The opening of this new campus represents a new and exciting era in dedicated arts education in Montgomery Public Schools.  This reception is usually in conjunction with BTW's "Showcase of Talent" which had to be canceled for the second consecutive year due to pandemic concerns.  But, education goes on, and we hope you will be able to join us!

 

The architects and plans will be available for discussion and viewing.  Across the board, BTW stakeholders are excited about the new era of enhanced arts education in Montgomery Public Schools.  While the district is funding construction of the new campus, there remain many, many expenses unique to a high quality arts curriculum.  Your support is valued and appreciated.  We -- the F.A.M.E. Board -- look forward to supporting the talented students who are both academically and artistically gifted, but may not have the personal resources to support the pursuit of their passion.  Supplies in all disciplines are expensive.  Registration and travel fees for exhibits, festivals, conferences and enrichment experiences that enhance learning and development are often out-of-reach for our our students.  Financial resources are often limiting, which can impact competitive college applications.  We exist -- with your support -- to provide opportunities for these amazing students!  Thank you for being a supporter of Arts Education!
