Gavin-Bacote Endowed Band Scholarship

Thomas Bacote and Thomas Gavin are both former Band Directors for the Fayetteville State University Marching Bronco Express Band.  The marching band at Fayetteville State University ("Marching Bronco Express" or "MBX") is the major performing organization of the university. The MBX has performed for thousands of people around the country at various parades, countless home and away football games and events at venues on campus and around the Southeastern NC region.

The Gavin-Bacote Endowed Band Scholarship was established in their honor and is given to a sophmore or above member of the Marching Bronco Express Band.
