We as a community are very excited about our children’s scholastic future and the endless opportunities we will strive to provide for them.”

MAAAC Arts and Band Representative Jessica Langston said that many wonderful plans are in the works.

“We're so excited to form this organization,” she said. “We want our Orange Beach students to start out with firm financial support during this very early phase of middle and high school extra-curriculars. We want to show equal attention to academic clubs, arts, and sports so that our children have every opportunity for a well-rounded school career and a culturally-enriched life.”
