Congrats to all of the band members, Dr. Rhoden and her staff and to all of the parents that volunteer to make it all happen. What a great season!
Now if McIntosh could find a leader of the same caliper of Dr. Rhoden to lead their band program maybe they could compete at this level, but until then its the same ol, same ol.
<strong>Congratulations again Tigers, you Rock!</strong>

Fayette County High School Band
Clarinet player Nikolas Smith of the Fayette County High Marching Tigers is one of 125 high school band students from across the country chosen as a member of the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Marching Band. He is one of seven from Georgia to make the cut. This is the fourth year Fayette County High has had a band member chosen for the U.S. All-American Band.

Band directors nominate their outstanding marching musicians and color guard members for the honor. Students must be on track to graduate the same year as the All-American Marching Band selection for which they are nominated.

The U.S. Army All-American Marching Band has been a fixture at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl since 2008. It features the top 125 high school senior marching band members from across the United States. Members get an all-expenses-paid trip to bowl week in San Antonio, Texas in January
