SPOTLIGHT!Jack Mims and Bree Ford earn places in Alabama All-State Band
On Saturday, January 25th, several Sweet Water students auditioned against students from 8 counties in the district for spots in District 5 Honor Band and Alabama All-State Band. Each of the eight band districts in Alabama are allowed to send limited numbers of students on to the state's top 4 performing ensembles. Along with earning places in district 5's honor band, Jack Mims (Junior, oboe) and Bree Ford (Sophomore, clarinet) earned a chance to perform at All-State Band Festival in Huntsville, AL this coming April. They are the only two students from the school and county to earn these distinctions this year.
