CONCERT BAND & WINTER GUARD
The band received straight Superior ratings from all judges, and many positive comments as well. David Willson, Director of Bands at Ole Miss, said the band was mature, musical, and well taught. He also said it was "time to spread the word about the excellence of this program."
Thank you to the JA Administration members who came to the concert to support the band: Peter Jernberg, Cliff Kling, David Sykes, and Steve McCartney. Mr. McCartney also came to Holmes CC Saturday night for the MIA Championships for Winter Guard.
We are extremely proud of these dedicated, intelligent, focused students. They are accomplishing exceptional things and continue to represent Jackson Academy in an exemplary manner.
THANK YOU, PARENTS!
Thank you to Vicki Tirman, Charlette Oswalt, and Catherine Arnold for helping with lunch and transport for the students on Friday.
