Mustang Band Alumni Association

The Clifton Mustang Band Alumni Association awards three scholarships
annually at the Annual Awards Dinner to senior band members who will be
using dues and fundraising money. Two scholarships honor former band
director Robert D. Morgan, and our first drum majorette,
