Dr. Andrew Tucker, Director of Bands at RHHS said, “This Saturday was just a snapshot into the passion with which our students in the Mighty Hawk Band walk into every rehearsal and down the halls of Heath High School. We often talk about what it means to wear the “H” with pride and that we have a responsibility to each other to strive to achieve that pride through making music. Our success on Saturday was not only an impressive achievement, but also an acknowledgment from our students to the process of working hard, learning and putting trust in one another.”
