EDWARD – The band staff found out earlier this week that freshmen trumpet player, Edward Vissoni, was in the hospital. He has now been diagnosed with Leukemia. The directors went to visit him on Tuesday. He was very happy to receive a big banner signed by the band and a huge card from the band with many nice notes and words of encouragement. Some of the student leaders went to see him yesterday. Right now the only thing his parents have requested is that students either visit him or send him words of encouragement. They also ask for your prayers.

USBANDS REMO SERIES FINALE – This past Saturday the Lamar HS Marching Band took first place at the USBands regional marching contest in Austin, TX. The competition, titled the Remo Finale Series, included 19 bands from across the state. The Lamar Band won with an overall score of 92.7 and received the Outstanding Visual caption title. The Lamar band competed in the USBands competitive circuit three separate times this season. LHS won its class at both the Austin and Burleson contests, the third was a rainout. Congratulations to the Lamar High School Band on an undefeated USBands season!
