Oak Ridge Band Honors Seniors and Their Parents

Last Friday night, before the football game vs. Bryan at Woodforest Stadium, the Oak High School Band honored the Senior Class and their parents. They pretty much have to honor the parents after all those folks have been through over the past seven or eight years: those oh-so-glorious middle school band concerts, the cost or purchasing and maintaining instruments, band camp, band trips, early morning band practice, volunteer work with the band, fundraising that seems to go on forever, and the joy of listening to one’s child learn a new instrument.

Without band parents, ORHS would not have an award-winning band. They deserve any accolades they can grab. If you missed it, here are some pictures of last Friday night’s festivities.

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.
