    What a great job done by everyone involved! The band put on a great show today! We rooted for you from our living room while we watched you march down that street! It was also very nice to be able to be informed via this website. KUDOS to all for letting all of us share our kids’ adventure! Thank you!!!

    To think that my daughter came from a band with 12 to 14 members to play with an almost 400 memeber band, who played in the Tournament of Roses Parade is awesome!
    I am so thankful for this site. Education in the arts is so important. Katlyn and the rest of the band you guys are “The Best Damn Band in the Land” and truly “Our Pride of the Mountains”. Congratulations and best wishes for the New Year!A proud parent and educator who gradated from WCU.
    Go Cats Go!
