Read Time:1 Minute, 24 Second

Dozens of students from two historically black colleges and universities were surprised with an all-expenses-paid trip to the 65th Monterey Jazz Festival. Alaska Airlines surprised nearly 40 students from Morgan State University and Texas Southern University, some of whom had never flown before. “For a lot of us, it’s the first time we’ve ever gone to a big jazz festival,” said high school senior and bassist for the school’s jazz ensemble, Braylan Walker. “There are people who have never been on a plane, there are people who could never afford it. I am one of those people. I am very grateful.” Passengers on the flight from Morgan State were serenaded by a choir and Alaska Airlines customer service agent and recording artist Lauren Brown. Choir and jazz students will perform Thursday night at CSUMB.
