We recently had two different organizations in the studio to talk about different benefit concerts for the community. Kelsey and The Fern got to interview the following students about them, so we hope you enjoy listening and learning about how to make our community better through some awesome music… Enjoy!

CSA Secretary and singer/songwriter Karen Thomas also told us all about how the Construction Student Association helps students pursue careers in the construction business sector.
