CHS Band Director Richard Newhart was the primary target for sprayed silly string during the final (fun) song performed Tuesday in the CHS gym during the Spring Concert.

Many awards for outstanding band members were made following performances by the Beginning Band, Advanced Band, Honors Band and High School Band.

The CHS band will also perform at Baccalaureate (May 15) and Graduation (May 17).

Paisley Eberle won the John Philip Sousa Award which is the top high school band honor (presented by Richard Newhart). She also received the first scholarship awarded by the Band Booster.

This is just a part of the CHS Percussion Ensemble that performed a Star Wars (Cantina) number.
Knowing that Paisley Eberle (the very first C.H. Wright 7th Grade award winner in 2006) was about to graduate,
I requested a group photo of all the winners so far. Kody Compton won in 2007. Marissa Jennings won in 2008. Josh McBlair won in 2009. Megan House won in 2010. Logan Robertson is the 2011 winner. -- Ted Wright (Claude Henderson Wright's Grandson)
