Three members of the Pirate Band were honored as Texas Music Scholars at the band’s Spring Concert on May 3, 2018. The students receiving this honor were

They were nominated for this honor by Mr. Mark Fender, and the award was given by the Texas Music Educators Association. Last year, out of all the students statewide that participate in band, choir and orchestra, fewer than 2,100 students received this award.

The specific requirements to receive this award include
· Maintaining an overall “A” average
· Being selected as a member of the All-Region Band (or Choir or Orchestra)
· Performing a solo chosen from the most difficult list of UIL solos
