    My outstanding granddaughter, OLIVIA POE, Star City, is attending one of the band camps at UAM, the Jr. High camp 6/16. I am so proud of her early accomplishments and know this great opportunity will help in so many ways. Thank you UAM and the Star City schools for allowing our wonderful students the chance to learn and gain from these camps.
