Marks, 6th Row: Ms. Simpson, L. Fewell. The Marching Band consists of persons from the Intermediate and Advanced Band classes. In order to make Marching Band, members got much of their training in the midst of their Beginning Band year. To watch them practice reminded you of an army drilling. Members learned the proper way to hold their instruments, and the correct way to march without getting overly tired. It wasn ' t as easy as it looked. Once the Marching Band was established, it had to constantly promote school spirit. The Band marched in four out of five home football games and at four of the away football games. They also marched in the Annual Christmas Parade in which they wore their new uniforms. Dawn Painter, majorette, performed at Homecoming Game. 97
