So proud of these four young musicians who did such an outstanding job of representing CPS and the Gator Band in the James G. Gunn Honor Band in Thomasville this weekend! Ashley Ballard, Adam Cooke, and Drew Norman performed with the Tombigbee Band, while Matthew Padgett performed with the Alabama Band! Both bands sounded awesome at the concert Saturday night! Congrats also to Braden Hicks, who was selected for the honor band but was ill and unable to attend. We missed you!
