Testimonial

I am the music teacher at Freeport Elementary School and also grew up in Walton County. The Cultural Arts Alliance helped me go to college in 2007 by providing a scholarship and I will be forever grateful for that. I just wanted to say thank you not only for helping musical and artistic people like me, but also for inviting the Emerald Coast Theater Group to our schools here! They are at Freeport Elementary today, and the students are thrilled to be able to be a part of this! It means so much to us to have music and art in our programs and to have your support.

Thanks for all you do.
Sincerely,

Angela S.
