Our band family mourns the death of one of our own, John Robb, who was killed in an accident on Friday. Please pray for the Robb family, for the program staff and for all these kids who now have to learn about grief together.
Our thoughts are also with Alan Wright and his family as he works through physical and emotional recovery.
John was the 2016 WHHS drum major and was one of the WHHS students also involved in the North Greenville Indoor percussion group. Although devastated, the NGI group decided to participate in WGI Regionals on Saturday in a modified performance in memory of John. They received second place in their division.
WSPA did a very nice job on this story about John and the performance: http://wspa.com/2017/03/04/upstate-teen-killed-in-wreck-honored-with-drumline-performance/
Watch video of the tribute performance: https://youtu.be/DFOr1Tkp9_M
We will provide information regarding arrangements as it becomes available if the family wishes.
