The AJ Howard Memorial Fund was established in May of 2016 when AJ was tragically killed in an auto accident. In lieu of flowers at his memorial service, AJ’s mother asked that money be donated to the M100 to help pay the band fees for those students who would benefit from the support of available funds. These donations have covered the cost of equipment, uniforms, and instrument fees for many M100 band members, making it possible for all M100 members to have what they need to participate in Band.
The Belton Band Boosters will continue to support M100 students through the annual AJ Howard Memorial Fund 5K, which is the primary fundraiser and annual celebratory event. All funds raised through the 5K will be used to provide equipment, uniforms, and instrument fees for students who otherwise would not be able to participate in Band. AJ was well loved by his fellow band members and had a servant’s heart; through the AJ Memorial Fund, his spirit of generosity lives on and he will continue to impact the lives of fellow M100 members for many years to come.
