March is national Music In Our Schools Month, and Grayson County High School musicians kicked off the celebration with a school-wide salute.
The programs—band, orchestra, chorus, drumline and colorguard—have each grown exponentially over the past few years and now boast a collective 700+ students between them. All are award-winning and consistently field musicians and vocalists in All-District, All-State, and Honors groups.
The district’s four elementary schools provide music education to students through the guidance of Nichole Peters at Caneyville, Tammy Akridge at Clarkson, Paula Cundiff at Lawler, and Lisa Oller at Wilkey. Middle and high school programs flourish under the expert direction of band directors Aaron and Ashley Bell and Gary Parker, orchestra directors Adam and Stacy French, and choral music directors Teresa Jarboe and Selena Walker.
Grayson County Schools is proud of the rich music tradition that today continues to flourish both in its schools and throughout the community.
