First off, a huge thank you goes out to every student that participated and showed an interest in being on the student leadership team for this upcoming year.

We had 70 students finish the entire leadership application process, doing everything from peer evaluations, marching auditions, teaching auditions, and even a one-on-one interview with the directors.To say we are proud of everyone is an absolute understatement.

We look forward to the upcoming school year, and please send your congratulations to the McNeil High School Band Leadership Team for the 2019-2020 school year.
