Congratulations to Christopher George (Trumpet) on being selected
for the All-East 'Blue' Jazz Band, and earning a chance to audition for the Tennessee All-State Jazz Band.
In addition, Marley Profitt (Alto Sax), Carter Hatch (Tenor Sax),
Julian Gerdeman (Bari Sax), and Wyatt Harper (Bass) earned seats in
the 'White' band.
Mr. Ford and I are very proud of the band's performance at the Enka
Marching Festival. Overall, had the second highest score of the day,
missing first place by only 0.98 points. We were one of only two
bands to score higher than 90, so the band should be proud of your
efforts and work. The Guard placed 3rd in our class (of 5 bands),
Percussion placed second, our Music score was second, and we were
first in Visual. Special congratulations to Mirabella Leonard,
Christopher George, and Hannah Morgan
on earning the the best 'Drum Major'
Thanks so much to Mrs. George and all of the Booster volunteers who worked countless hours
to make the 2015
MMI a success. Congratulations to Oak Ridge and Alcoa on winning the
'High Music Score' in the large and small classes.
On behalf of Mr. Ford and myself, it is a pleasure to work with such
a dedicated group of parents and students.
