Each year, J.W. Pepper's Atlanta store has the privilege of contributing and presenting prizes to the winning students in the Youth Jazz Band Competition for the Atlanta Jazz Festival. Dozens of area middle and high schools jazz ensembles compete with the top three awarded prizes including imprinted folders and gift certificates.  According to Kenya Morgan, Pepper's Sales Coordinator in Atlanta, the festival is a "natural fit for Pepper, as the event supports music education in our region and offers all that attend a great opportunity to experience the vibrant jazz culture of the Atlanta area." Beyond that,  Morgan believes"it's a wonderful way to spend Memorial Day weekend. "J.W.
