Band News

If you notice 48 extra wide smiles at Bonner Middle School, it's because the Honor Band received straight superiors at Festival! The Honor Band traveled to Radford University where seventy-two bands and orchestras played. In the sight reading portion, the students are given seven minutes to prepare a piece they have never played before. They were not allowed to play anything until that time was up. The Bonner students received a superior score in sight reading.

Honor Band is completely extracurricular, so the hard work the students put into receiving these superiors only took place after school. The Honor Band members are Shauna Atkins, Preston Harris, Alondra Hernandez, D’Andre Holiday, Steven Leach, Clara MacFarland, Rodrigo Magana, Tyler McGaughey, Aleah Morton, Carson Osborne, Ben Piccolo, Mikaila Robinson, Cami Wade, Douglas Barton, Asher Caplan, Shaqunita Crews, Daniel Davis, Ishmale Davis, Ismonie Davis, Robert Dickerson, Tanner Emerson, Nia Fowler, Tyra Grove, Shelita Hall, Kiera Hough, Tiera Hough, Courtney Howerton, Nick Johnson, Summer Jones, Bryanna McLaughlin, Merlin Mei, Justin Mondul, Madison Osborne, Rashad Pinchback, Chyna Price, Neriah Ray-Saunders, Loretta Reed, Jeremiah Robertson, Sam Roche, Gunnar Rojas, Malik Terry, Kasey Towler, Agustin Vazquez, Josh Via, David Walker, Kaya’lea Crews, Marquise Davis, and Jazmyn Wimbush. Congratulations to the Bonner Honor Band members and their director, Mrs. Katie Mitchell.
