This is the second year in a row that eight MHS students have been selected for this honor.

The musicians selected are:
  • Jillaynne Bass, sophomore, alto saxophone
  • Saralena Bergsma, junior, trumpet
  • Soren Bruehler, sophomore, trombone
  • Jessica Evans, senior, trumpet
  • Jaelin Lindsay, junior, clarinet
  • Shawntaia Matherly, junior, bass clarinet
  • Geordaun Shaw, senior, trumpet
  • Jade Wood, junior, flute
Each of these students was recommended by their band director, Mr. Huff, and submitted applications to be considered for the Honor Band earlier this year. Applications from students across the state were evaluated to select members of this talented group. Selected musicians are now tasked with practicing the musical selections in preparation for the upcoming performance.

On Nov. 17, Honor Band members from around the state will gather to rehearse together for the first time. Then, on Sunday, Nov. 18, they will perform together at 4 p.m. at Dekalb High School in Waterloo. This performance is open to the public.

Congratulations to these talented, hard-working students on this great accomplishment! The All-District Honor Band is a great opportunity, and will give them a chance to learn and grow as musicians.
