The Red River High School Band is recognized for excellence wherever it goes. Earlier this month they were recognized at the school board meeting by Superintendent Alison Hughes.
Band Director Yasmine Jason brought her outstanding students to the meeting. Hughes congratulated the band for the outstanding performance they deliver at halftime when the football team is at home.
Jason reported, “They went to Many for band competition. In every category we competed in we made superior. We were the best band program there.” And Jason says there is more to come, more auditions for honor band and more activities such as participating in mardi gras parades across the state.
Hughes said, “I can remember when we did not have a band. But that is no problem now! I get lots of compliments, especially from the halftime shows (Band Director) Jason and her crew puts together.”
