2018 Begins With Success!

Happy New Year everyone and thank you to all of the students who participated in the Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl with us on January 1, 2018.  The temperatures were excessively cold, but our students persevered and gave an outstanding performance during the parade and the pre-game.

All-State auditions took place this past Saturday at Houston County High School in Warner Robins, Georgia.  Students had to make it past the first round of auditions, which were in December, to be invited to participate in this final round.  Please help us congratulate the following students for representing our Trojan Band at this audition:

The students competed against the other 2000 students who were attendance.  Carrollton High School had three names listed on the list for All-State this year!  Please help us to congratulate Kendall Ozier and Taylor Berry for making the band and Kelley Ozier for being listed as a first alternate!  Making All-State is a very difficult task and we are very proud to be represented by these students!  Congratulations!!

Mr. Bright has started a Basketball Pep Band for interested students.  Volunteers will perform at a couple of basketball games this year to cheer on our Trojans on Criswell Court.  Students will get in free to the game and have a chance to visit concessions between games for dinner.  Our first game is January 16, 2018.  Students should wear blue jeans and their show shirt to the games. Report time is 5:00PM to the band room and we should be done by 9:00PM.
