A Topeka High trumpeter was honored tonight with a special gift.

Jasper Shrake plays for the Topeka High School Band.

On Wednesday night, the Children’s Wish Foundation presented him with two professional trumpets to assist him at Washburn University next year where he plans to major in music.

Shrake was born with spina bifida, a disorder that involves the incomplete development of the spinal cord or its coverings.

His mother recently applied for the award.

Shrake was first chair trumpet in the Kansas Music Educator’s All State Band this past February.
