-Waltrip High School Band Directors and Staff


The S.P. Waltrip Senior High School Band has been invited to perform at several venues during the Presidential Inaugural Celebration in Washington, D.C., in January 2013. The Band has also been selected as a candidate to be the band program representing the State of Texas in the Inaugural Parade, which is truly a great honor and a once in a lifetime opportunity for these hardworking, high-achieving students.

In an effort to raise money for the trip, the Ram Band students have held several fundraisers in between competitions, daily practice, and weekly football game performances including car washes, a rummage sale, and the annual Ram Band barbeque dinner and auction. Band members and parents are also appealing to corporate sponsors, alumni and community businesses for support. The balance of funds needed still stands near $75,000.00 – and this amount must be raised by early January 2013.

I am so glad for you. Cheering you on from Minnesota. And a cold weather tip from a cold weather state: Buy charcoal activated warmers (Grabbers, HotHand, Heatmax), to slip into your gloves and shoes. You may be young, excited, and moving around, but frostbite tends not to care about those things. I'll be watching for you. Cheers!

Sorry I haven't done this sooner. I had a death in the family recently. I know you've reached your goal, but a little extra won't hurt.
