They’ve done it again! The Page High School Marching Band won first place November 7 at the 35th Annual Tennessee Division II State Marching Band Championships.
Page won the finals with a score of 94.75. This is the band’s eighth state championship in the event’s 35 year history. The band also won the following caption awards: Best Music, Best Visual, Best Effect, Best Percussion and Best Drum Major.
“It is such a joy and privilege to get to teach these amazing kids,” said PHS Band Director Matt Emerson. “I am so happy and thrilled for them to get to experience this level of success. They have exhibited so much discipline, drive and determination, and they are truly worthy of this honor.”
It’s an accomplishment Emerson hopes will motivate and inspire the students for years to come.
“While they will remember this night for the rest of their lives, what I really want them to remember is the journey that got them here, because it is a process,” said Emerson. “The method with which we approach this activity can enable them to be successful in anything they do in life.”
