The band will march in the Governor’s inauguration parade today.

This is the first time the band has been asked to participate in the inauguration parade and is the first from the Madison County system.

“Speaker Mac McCutcheon invited the band to come play in the parade,” head band director David Raney said. “So he asked the administration if we could participate.”

Knowing the band could do something like this with a bit of preparation, he said yes to the invitation. After scheduling two practices for students to learn how to march a parade, the band directors went on to pick show music and make preparations for the band.

“This brings a high honor to the band,” Raney said. “So it feels good to know we were recognized by the community for the hard work put in by all the students.”

Students are excited to try something they have never done and are hoping the parade will be a huge success.

“Marching in the parade is interesting because it’s almost like freshman year” said senior Loren Meshensky said. “We used to march with the band like we’re doing now to help us learn, so it brings back so many memories.”
