Paul won awards with the Waxahachie High School Marching Band and Jazz Band. A highlight was their trip to Europe to an invitational Jazz Festival. His trombone quartet won State honors in Texas on several occasions. He also played on the high school tennis team. Paul graduated from Waxahachie High School in 1998. Since then, he has attended several semesters at Southwestern A/G University, Cedar Valley College and Navarro College.
Besides being accomplished musician and a talented artist winning several awards in both fields while still in high school, recently Paul helped co-direct a North Texas District “preacher’s kids” camp where the Lord blessed in a special way. Paul’s desire is to use his God-given talents in the business field in a way that will honor God and help advance the cause of missions.
