Both student groups will be participating in a Spring Break trip to Japan where they will entertain U.S. troops stationed at Yokosuka Naval Base and Yokota Air Force Base.
They also will visit Yachiyo, Tyler's Sister City.
Each student has committed to personally funding half of the trip's cost as well as participating in fundraising efforts, according to a TJC news release. However, more help is needed.
The trip costs $3,200 per person and the college is seeking sponsorships to help defray the costs for the Apache Band and Belles members, according to the news release.
