Marching In The Direction Of Their Dreams

Naomi Cuzmar, Music Editor, The Page Editor

Band Director Mike Harrison has been teaching at Urbana High School for five years, going on six. This year he is preparing his students for the upcoming events: The State Championships on October 21 at Towson University and The National Championships at Metlife stadium in New Jersey November 11.

The marching band have won three State Championships in the last four years. Harrison states he “Would really like to bring another one back.” The goal for his students is for their last performance to be their best performance. He hopes his students will continue to grow as musicians and performers, but also develop as young adults in their time management and good citizenship. To read the rest of this story, pick up a copy of The Hawkeye from the newsstand near the front office or the media center.
