By Yasmine Jason, Red River Band Director
I’m pleased to announce that Red River High School students auditioned for District 2 Honor Band last weekend. One band member, Carlena Henry made the ensemble.
Honor Band is an elite ensemble of the best musicians in our Louisiana district. In District 2, there are 12 high schools that we compete against. To make the band is a very hard task to complete and the students did an excellent job. We are extremely proud of all their accomplishments.

Red River High School would like to say congratulations to Carlena Henry. She will represent RRHS as a member of the Laffitte Honor Band. She is the 8th chair out of 32 clarinets that auditioned in our district. Good luck and we know you will represent us well.
We also want to acknowledge our other students who auditioned last weekend: Justin Johnson, William Craine, Terry Adams, Michael Evans, AJ Robinson, Billy Henry, Skyler Kitchens, Nevaeh Caldwell and Kayla Williams. These students also did very well, and some came very close to making the ensemble. Great job students and thank you to Band DirectorYasmine Jason.
