Lamar is from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and will be attending Florida A&M University (FAMU) majoring in Music Performance. During the application process we were so impressed with how Lamar cared for his grandmother full time during her recovery from a fall. Our sense of his maturity, kindness, and work ethic were only confirmed during our interview. Lamar is already an accomplished musician and learned to play the drums from the age of four. His grandmother taught him to play the piano and he also plays trombone and saxophone. Lamar will be joining the FAMU marching band, dubbed the Marching 100. The Marching 100 is one of, if not the top, college marching bands in the country and has played in the inaugural parades of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. We couldn’t be more impressed with how Lamar approaches life and can’t wait to see his successes at FAMU.
