These students were 8 of the 200 best middle school musicians selected for the North Central Iowa Bandmasters Association (NCIBA) District Honor Band on Saturday, November 11th at Algona High School. Most of the students placed 1st chair in their section. All the 8th grade students had the opportunity to audition for 8th Grade All Iowa Honor Band held at the Des Moines Marriott Thursday, May 10th.

We had four students accepted to All Iowa–Trista Strohman on clarinet, Miranda Deppe on alto sax, Tanner Blue on trombone, and Walker Heins on euphonium was accepted as an alternate. This is the highest honor you can achieve in middle school band. Congratulations to those individuals!From left to right: Walker Heins, Eli Potter, Tanner Blue, Grace Young, Mikayla Gasaway, Miranda Deppe, Trista Strohman, and Erin Hassebrock.
