I just want to extend "CONGRATULATIONS" again to Victoria Blalock and Cheyanne Draughn for their being selected for the 2015 homecoming court. We, as a band, are proud of both of you! Congratulations to you both again!
A special "thank you" to all the 8th graders who joined us this evening from Holmes Middle School. It was a lot of fun to have our younger band brothers and sisters with us tonight. It was also a pleasure to conduct you through the national anthem during pre-game. I, and the Pride of Morehead, hope that you will become a part of the band in 2016. We loved having you with us tonight! Also, "thank you', Mrs. Pugh, for all that you do!
Another special "thank you" to the McMichael High School Band. It was a lot of fun having you with us tonight. We enjoyed your show and hope you had a pleasant experience at Morehead High School!
To all of our band members who are taking the SAT, good luck! I know that many of you are stressed but I just wanted to say that I appreciate all that you do and the sacrifices you made to perform "Fifth Quarter" this evening. I know that the time and energy it takes to maintain a balance between school work, band, and other activities and responsibilities is difficult. Your hard work is appreciated more than you can know.
Lastly, but certainly not least, a HUGE THANK YOU to our band boosters. This program wouldn't function or even exist in its' present form without your diligence and dedication. I have never met a finer group of people. Your acts of selflessness and overall dedication to all the students in the band program is beyond commendable. I am thankful for all that you do!
