SSHS Fine Arts and Band Director Charles McCauley praised the 9th graders in the Sulphur Springs High School Band. Thirteen student earned spots on the All-Region Band during tryouts Monday night. The 9th grade band serves as a bridge between junior high and high school band. Tryouts for high school students require all student playing the same instrument in the room at the same time as opposed to the junior high one student at a time in the tryout room. Twenty-five SSHS freshmen tried out for the band. Thirteen were named to the All-Region Band that will perform Saturday in Marshall.
