All of the judges gave the student’s 1st division rating in both concert and sight reading.
Keep Texas Beautiful has recognized the Levelland Affiliated branch as a Gold Star member of the organization. This is a rare honor given only to 70 of the 300 affiliated branches throughout the state, and will be formally recognized at their 54th Annual Meeting in June. In order to become a gold star member, an affiliated branch must meet certain requirements. A branch must share their mission statement and goals, answer questions about their economic, diversity, and inclusion plan, participate in the Beautify Texas awards, or Governor’s Community Achievements Awards, and send a letter of support to their community. Keep Levelland Beautiful’s local mission is to improve community appearance through partnerships, education and actions. In 2020 alone, KTB affiliated branches engaged over 20,000 volunteers for more than 37,000 hours and collected 1 million pounds of waste and recyclables from Texas roads and waterways.
