HIGH­LIGHT: ALABAMA

USA TODAY International Edition - - NEWS -

Mont­gomery: It’s been nearly 20 years since the Robert E. Lee High School band has marched in new uni­forms. Now, thanks to dis­cre­tionary fund do­na­tions of $10,000 from county com­mis­sion­ers Isa­iah Sankey and Ronda Walker, the band is about two-thirds of the way to rais­ing the more than $30,000 needed to buy 50 uni­forms, which cost $674 apiece. A car wash Satur­day is among up­com­ing fundrais­ers that aim to help fill the gap.
