Tonight marks another milestone in Carrollton High School history, and for our seniors one of the highlights of their lives so far. We are so fortunate that these students decided to continue their commitment to our band program and are proud of all of their accomplishments! Each of our 18 graduating seniors has a different story but all share their love of the Carrollton Trojan Band!
We teach the students that although there are not leadership titles for all of the students in band, just being an upperclassmen means that younger students will look up to you. This is especially true when you are a senior. You are a role model, whether you want to be or not. We remind them that often times you influence others even though you are unaware of it happening. Evan Block, Carter Culwell, Haynes Driver, Ross Gordon, Aracelly Hererra, Tatyana Hill, Haley Kemp, Liedwellyn King, Falen Kizunga, Jasmine Mays, Eric Mejia, Jessica Nixon, Maya O’Neal, Kaity Presteridge, Will Rollins, Keonna Stanley, and Caleb Whitworth served as very worthy role models for the Trojan Band and have proudly left a lasting impression on our family. It is with excitement that we celebrate their milestone this evening in a commencement of their journey into adulthood.
Might I add that our group of band graduates include Carrollton High School’s Salutatorian and Valedictorian! What a testament of the caliber of students we have in this wonderful senior class! Special congratulations to Carter Culwell and Hannah Johnson for earning these honors respectively. All of our seniors have numerous accomplishments that we will celebrate tonight at 8:00PM and our band will be there to send them off proudly.
Seniors, thank you for giving a true effort daily to set examples and help our program reach new levels of excellence. You all have many gifts to offer our world and without a doubt our world is better off because of you!
Congratulations to the Class of 2015!
