Jeremiah Travis has been the youngest member
of the St Helene College and Career Academy band for three years.
He was two years old when he was scouted
by band director Chesteron Frye, who heard him keeping time with the band from
the stands at a football game.
Now Jeremiah practices drumming with the
student band for three hours four days a week, and has become the subject of
national interest as videos of him performing have gone viral, as well as a local
celebrity and a source of pride for the community.
Jeremiah's mom, Nicole Jackson, was
shocked and thrilled when the band director at Alcorn State University Called
to offer a scholarship.
Jeremiah has plenty of time to make decisions about college, but for now he's excited to continue drumming.
