A Band's Long March to D.C.

You hear stories all the time about how a great leader can turn a group around; I can't count the number of movies I've seen about coaches that took a group of players and formed up a great team.  Monday's story from Georgia's South Cobb High School is a nice variation of that theme:  a band director who drummed up attendance, enthusiasm and trophies, eventually leading his school's marching musicians to the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C.

It should be a great trip for them.  And whether your school's band has marched during halftime or inauguration time, you've got to give its members credit for working so hard.
