Monday, October 27, 2014

As we begin our school day this Monday morning, we mark the official end of the 2014 Marching Band Season.  As with any season, it was filled with emotional ups and downs, trials and tribulations but as a team, the 2014 Marching Hawks can say with confidence, that they accomplished the goals they set forth in July.  Much like any competitive activity, the outsiders will make their judgments on wins and losses.  While this group had their share of “wins”, the real victories were much more numerous than the trophies we brought home.  This season saw a group of 87 young men and women buy into a process that focused on not only being good performers, but more importantly, being good people.   For the last three months we have lived by the mantra “Trust the Process” which, consequently is a philosophy we proudly share with our highly successful football program.  This brings us to another one of those small “victories” that you won’t find on a score sheet.  The 2014 season saw the spirit groups at Hillsboro work together at an unprecedented level.  Specifically the football players and the band members.  I am proud to say that with help of Coach Freeman and his staff, the members of our respective teams have discovered a new respect for one another.  There aren’t many high schools in the United States where you will find football players going out of their way to wish the band members luck at their next competition or simply thanking them for their support on a Friday night.  However, it is happening here, and it is refreshing.   As we end one season, and begin the next chapter of our school year, we would like to thank everyone for their support this Fall.  We had a great season, but this is just the beginning.  Stay Tuned.
