Last night at UNO, the District VI Band Directors Association held their final meeting of the year. We are proud to announce that the Archbishop Shaw Band Program was named one of the district’s Exemplary High School Band Programs for the 2015-16 school year. As the name implies, Shaw’s program can be used as an example of what a complete and successful Band Program should be. This is the sixth straight year that Shaw’s Band has been so recognized.
Also at the meeting, the Greater New Orleans Area Band Directors voted on the District VI 2016 Band Director of the Year. We are very pleased to announce that the other Band Directors in the district selected Shaw’s Band Director, Mr. Guy Wood, for this honor!
Finally, the band wishes to announce that at last week’s Band Concert and Awards Night, Huey Tucker Campbell was chosen as the Marching Band’s Drum Major for next year.
Congratulations go to Huey, Mr. DeMarais, Mr. Wood, and the entire Shaw Eagle Band Program.
