One Band, One Sound – ORHS Drumline Wins

The Oak Ridge High School Drumline, under the direction of Mr. Jerriald Dillard, traveled to Lewisville, Texas last weekend for the Lonestar Drumline Competiton, where they took top honors in Division 2.  These students are among the hardest working groups in the school, staying many hours after the rest of the band has gone home.  Their hard work has paid off as they took First Place and Best of Show for their division.  They also received awards for Best Bassline and Best Front Ensemle.  They did a modified version of the band’s “What If” half-time performance.  They made their school, fellow band members, parents, and band directors very proud!

Chuck Briese, Oak Ridge Now

[avatar user="cbriese" size="thumbnail" align="left"] Chuck Briese has been a resident of South Montgomery County since 1988. He and his lovely and patient wife, Leslie, have six sons, with only one left to finish high school. Chuck has been a Cub Scout leader, a Little League baseball coach, a church youth leader, and a general troublemaker over the course of the past 25 years. He is obsessed with his lawn, and likes restaurants that serve food that fills up the plate. He has a tendency to tilt at windmills, which may explain why he started Oak Ridge Now.
