Sam Rhinesmith Endowment

The Sam Rhinesmith Band Endowment Fund was established in 2010 by the North Central Band Parent Organization (BPO) with a matching grant from the Washington Township Schools Foundation (WTSF). This endowment is in honor of the legacy Mr. Rhinesmith instilled in the NC Band; a legacy that promotes concert band as the core and most integral part of the band program. This tradition has been proudly carried on with the NC Bands from 1955-present. This endowment will be used to fund private lessons for students with financial needs.
