Under the leadership of directors Mr. Ron Varn, Mrs. Ellen Varn, Mr. Tom Lewis, and Mr. Bruce Nist, the Hoover High School Marching Band worked hard to pull together a successful season that culminated in their qualifying for States at every competition. The band was also named Grand Champion at the competition in Louisville on September 19th.

At States in Columbus on October 31 and November 1, the band received an excellent rating, and the drumline and flagline individually received superior ratings.

“We’ve done a great job this season,” said Junior Caitlin Hunt, a percussionist in the band. “All of our hard work is finally paying off.”

Director Ron Varn was also pleased with the success of his students this year.

“I am extremely proud that the band has shown great professionalism in their performance,” Varn said. ¨We have much to proud of and to build upon as we look forward to our next season.¨
