Central Junior High Band Celebrates first UIL win

Posted: Updated:

The Central Junior High Symphonic Band is celebrated their first UIL victory Thursday.

Wednesday the band competed for the first time in concert and sight reading level. The band received first division for their efforts.

The band was awarded with a sweepstakes trophy after receiving a superior rating, which is the competition's top honor.

"Its validation that we have a very successful band program with kids that can hold their own against the very best musicians in East Texas," said David Lambert, Band Director.

The band started at the junior high three years ago with just 6th graders, each year they've added grades.

Now the band is an 6th through 8th grade program.
