If there was one consistent comment I heard from both judges and audience members alike at this year's SOUNDS LIKE KPAC talent competition, it's that the music, and and writing were of exceptionally high quality this year. Tallying the scores during intermission, it was clear this was a tight race. At the end of the afternoon, students from Ronald Reagan High School, Health Careers High School, Clark High School, and one local homeschool student all took first place awards at SOUNDS LIKE KPAC, held January 28, 2018 at McAllister Auditorium on the campus of San Antonio College.

Now that congress has passed tax reform, one thing is clear. It's time to review your estate plans. How will its key provisions impact you, the donor, and the charities your support? What are the implications of estate planning? And planned giving? Texas Public Radio and the San Antonio Area Foundation have partnered to bring a workshop designed to allow those with current estate plans to review them in light of the new tax laws while helping those just starting out to look at their assets and make smart plans for their family and charities they care about deeply.
