5th Annual John Simoneaux Memorial Jam Feb 28, 2004

 

All proceeds went to the John Simoneaux Memorial Endowed Scholarship in the School of Music at La. Tech.

Our special guest this year was Lauren Morgan, this year's recipient of the scholarship. She is looking forward to meeting John's family and all involved in the organization of the scholarship and had this to say:

 

Mr. Carter, 

Thank you very much for the invitation.
I have marked it on my calendar and look forward to the event. I look forward to meeting Mr. Simoneaux's mother and all who are involved.

Thank you once again. 
See you on the 28th of February.

Sincerely, Lauren Morgan

Proceeds from John's Memorial Jam went toward the John Simoneaux Memorial Scholarship at La Tech in Ruston. In the 3 years since John's passing, we've put enough money in the to pay approximately $350/quarter to the current recipient. With your help we can significantly increase that amount for future recipients.

Those of you who knew John, come join us in remembering him and his music...Those of you who didn't know him, come join our celebration of remembrance, enjoy an incredible jam, and help us help other aspiring musicians to realize their dreams.
