GW Marching Eagles/Bonner Band Members

Some Bonner Middle School band students have reason to celebrate! Along with being members of the O. T. Bonner Middle School band, they are also full members of the George Washington Marching Band. These students include Antoinette Wade and Kristen Valentine (color guard) and Clara McFarland, Preston Harris, Steven Leach, and Carson Osborne (horn line). These students are only allowed to be part of both bands by audition or by director recommendation. What an accomplishment!
These students participate in all of Bonner’s band activities, and they participate as Marching Eagles in competitions, at football games, and in parades. The band has already had a great deal of success this season by taking second place overall at the USSBA competition at William Byrd High School on Saturday, September 18, 2010. The band also took first place in color guard, percussion, and music at that competition. These students are already looking forward to their next big trip of the season: The Northern States USSBA Championship on October 29th and 30th in Allentown, PA.
