US Army All-American Band

Four Catoosa County Public Schools band students were recognized at the January 10, 2017, board of education meeting for being selected for the US Army All-American Band. Only 125 high school marching band members, among the millions in the United States, are selected each year for this prestigious honor. Band members are chosen not just because they excel musically, but because they are mentally and physically agile, know the importance of teamwork, and they are able to adapt to challenging situations, similar to the U.S. Army Soldiers.

According to the U.S. Army All-American website, “Only the strongest are chosen to wear the Army colors, and these strong men and women truly embody the characteristic of the Army Strong Solider: Strength through Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selflessness, Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage on a daily basis.”

Superintendent Denia Reese said, “It is an honor to recognize these young men for their musical ability, but more importantly for their strong character. I am so proud that all of our high schools were represented and that Catoosa County schools had four students chosen for this prestigious honor.”
