Celebrating families

EN-RICH-MENT has touched the lives of numerous families and this year we are celebrating families and individuals who were involved or connected to EN-RICH-MENT.

Our first highlight is the Morgan family. Malcolm and MJ joined EN-RICH-MENT in 2014. They are outstanding dancers. Malcom is artist and MJ plays the violin.

Their mother Stacie was dance director from 2015-2020. Her baby son Sylhas joined the drumline at the age of three.

Stacie’s daughter Melada worked at EN-RICH-MENT for two summers for various creative roles. Father and husband Melvin was transportation director for two summers. Thank you for supporting EN-RICH-MENT


EN-RICH-MENT’s impact is far reaching as evidenced by satisfaction surveys, committed student participation, parental commitment, and assistance to the program, as well as testimonials from graduates who are presently pursuing college degrees in music, theater and other related fields of study.
