The Royal Regiment was entered into the Outstanding Performance Series contest hosted by the Association of Small School Bands. At the region 10 round, our march placed 1st in the march category and our two concert selections placed 1st and 2nd in the concert category. Advancing to the area east round our march placed 3rd, with our two concert selections placing 6th and 7th. Although not advancing to state, the band did very well, advancing to the area level for the second time.
I graduated from Karnack High School in Northeast Texas as Valedictorian. I graduated from Lamar University with a Bachelor 's Degree in Music Education. I carry a lifetime teaching certification in All Levels Music. I was the assistant band director at Kirbyville C.I.S.D. and the head band director at Hardin I.S.D., before coming to Kountze. I play many instruments, but am the most proficient at trumpet. I have been blessed with a wonderful family and an extended family of band students.
