GHS MARCHING BAND IN ST. LOUIS PARADE
The Greenville High School Marching Comets were honored this year by marching in the St. Louis Thanksgiving Day Parade. WGEL spoke with Band Director Ryan Thomason.
Thomason wanted to thank everyone who supported the students, whether they watched on television or if they came to see the parade. There was a great community outpouring of support for the band. Thomason said that the kids did a wonderful job, and that he was extremely pleased and impressed with their performance. The GHS band was rated 6th out of 11 bands in the parade. Thomason was happy about this, as GHS was competing against a bunch of larger schools. The band performed so well, that they have already been invited to apply to appear at next year’s parade. Thomason hopes that this becomes an annual event for the Marching Comets.
