#RocketWednesday Alexis is playing the violin!

So excited to share that Alexis is playing violin! She had her first practice last week and has practiced every day since, according to a report from her family. They say that they already see a difference in her because of it! She will take violin lessons for the next 3 months thanks to her 4 sponsors; The Richart Family, The Mayer Family, and two anonymous sponsors.

Read why she was nominated by her teacher below:

I am nominating this wonderful student for LaunchPad’s mini scholarship. This student is very kind, caring, and compassionate. She is always eager to help others. I am nominating her due to some past trauma in her life. I believe she could truly benefit from extra-curricular activities, such as music, art, and/or gymnastics.-J.F.

3 months of violin lessons once per week at $25/session or $100/mth
