…Congratulations to Mrs. O’Connor(Band Director-Cimarron MS) and 8 LHS band students for all of their work directing and teaching at the 2nd Annual LHS Elementary Summer Band Camp. The Legend band students involved were: Jodi Brown/Kaelen Guthrie/Courtney Grubb/Allison Berry/Hallie Kimbrel/Lewis Farrar/Braiden Olds and Trevor Kimbrel.

The LHS Band students acted as mentors and section coaches for 20 young and aspiring 4th,5th and 6th grade musicians from the Legend Feeder Area. One of the young campers said, they “really enjoyed learning how to play the trumpet, but the best part was playing the daily games and activities and getting the snacks.” perspective????

Legend band student impacts community…

It is not often, that a young person is directly responsible for significant changes
in their community. Well that is exactly what Courtney Grubb (sophomore – Oboe/Flute) has done.

Recently, Courtney presented a proposal to the Parker Town Council, that would ban smoking in Playgrounds located within the Town of Parker. It passed!!!!!!!!

Great Job Courtney and keep making a difference!

We are all proud of you!
