What we're all about

Screenshot 20151128 230723
I am very passionate about guard & dance. I have dedicated countless hours & years to perfecting my skill & growing. Guard has opened many doors for me, and given me wonderful opportunities to grow, not just as a performer, but as a an individual, & as a leader. Last November I was given the opportunity to travel to Hawaii over Thanksgiving with my HS band, and perform for Pearl Harbor Survivors, their families, & other members, past & present, of the Armed Forces. Listening to first hand accounts of the attacks of Pearl Harbor that day will forever stay with me. It was a life changing experience, as I know this trip will be as well! I worked very hard, & used my savings to pay for the Hawaii trip last year, but after depleting my savings, that is where I know to make this trip happen, I have to ask for help.
I am a rising Senior, & this opportunity would mean THE WORLD TO ME!

What we're up to

  • Delayed Thanks to Aunt Steph & Uncle D

    I am so sorry these thank you's are so delayed...the site has been down for maintenance and I haven't been able to log in since my last post. Thank you both SO much for supporting me in everything I do!! I love you both SO much!! YOU ARE THE BEST!

  • Alexus received recognition from camp in the mail

    To say I am proud of my daughter is an understatement. :) This card came yesterday, and it was so unexpected! I am very proud of everything my daughter accomplishes, but receiving recognition for WHO she is and not what she DOES, that makes me prouder than anything!! I am so very, very proud!!

  • Rose Bowl Recognition at MFA camp

    Alexus attended a meeting while at camp to meet some of the directors and participants for the Rose Bowl parade. It was a great experience to learn a little about what to expect, and meet others who will be there with her. :)

  • MFA Camp 2016

    Alexus is at Music For All camp this week in Muncie, Indiana. She is learning from some wonderful people, and was recognized at camp for being selected to be a part of the Honor Bands of America. She also auditioned at camp to be in the TOP class, and made it! She was one of 20 people selected out of the hundreds at camp, and got a free rifle for making the class!! (picture below of her with 3 of her guard mates from Farragut who also made the ELITE class.) I am SO proud of my girl!!

  • Hi (Binder) Family <3

    First off I would like to thank you for taking me under your wing as if I were your other child. You guys have always supported everything I've done, and I can't thank you more for your support now and always. I appreciate the love you guys have always shown me, I can't wait to make you guys proud in the parade. Thank you for helping make my dreams become reality.

  • THANK YOU Uncle George Godwin!

    Thank you so much Uncle George for your help in making this opportunity possible! Your help means more than you will ever know. :)

  • UPDATE: Day 4 of Camp is in the books - Leadership camp & Guard mini camp

    It has been a long, hot, amazing week learning with my guard! Coming in as a Senior, a leader, someone looked up to has been so rewarding! Here is a picture from camp yesterday, please excuse the hot mess faces, its been scorching hot outside. :) One more day, & then I can get to work again! Sadly I was only able to work one 8 hour shift, & then had to take this week off for camp. But I will be back to working next week, I can't wait! :D Just so you know, I am still raising money. I have $325ish that I need towards my payment due the first of June. (EDCO keeps a percentage of the donations)

  • THANK YOU AUNT JULIE!!

    Thank you SO much for helping me towards my goal, I am SO very excited for this opportunity! Now that dance recital is behind me (this past weekend), I have leadership and band camp this week, then I am working as many hours as my boss will give me. I have families already booking me for babysitting jobs this Summer, and a side job lined up to help someone get ready for a yard sale. So I am working my bum off to reach this goal. Thank you for your help!! I love you.

  • Thank you Barbara!

    I really appreciate your support, thank you so much! Getting to this point has taken a lot of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication, but its all worth it! Last month, after competing in World Championships with my winterguard in Dayton, Ohio I took a class with 'So You Think You Can Dance's own, Sonya Tayeh. It was a great experience, and just a glimpse of my dedication. (and my Mom's support)
