Podcast: Poca High isn’t the only school that has to go beg for new band uniforms. Across WV, arts programs are struggling to survive.

A Poca High School student wrote about how his marching band needed money to replace their 14-year-old uniforms. Now, the marching band has raised about $6,000. But they’re not the only high school in West Virginia struggling to get funding for the arts.
