FROM BAND DIRECTOR BUDDY DEESE:
I wanted to let everyone know that our HS Band had their best run of the season yesterday [11/1/2106] at the Arkansas State Marching Contest. I was very proud of their performance! They represented our school and community extremely well.
The ratings were a bit short of our expectations. There were 5 judges - two scored us in the 1st division range and three scored us in the 2nd division range for a composite 2nd division rating. Competing at the state level is a big challenge for all of the bands. Just earning the right to compete is a big boost to our program. I know the students will take this experience to improve on the things that we are doing in the "band world” and make our Panther Band even bigger and better in the years to come.
Please help me to congratulate our students on representing us in such a positive manner.
Buddy Deese, Director
