All-Region Band Results

Advanced members competed in the TMEA All-Region Band Auditions in College Station on Saturday.  I am happy to report that 33 of our students earned a spot from the 48 students that we brought, which is nearly a 70% acceptance rate.  This breaks our previous record of 30 from last year.  A total of 8 middle schools participated from Belton, Bryan, and College Station, and I am very proud that we earned the most spots from any school!
