New plaques in band room

Friends, Supporters and Alumni: We need your help! We are in the process of updating our band room with items that represent our rich history. For decades one of the biggest recognitions music students can receive is being awarded "Outstanding Senior Band Member" and/or "Outstanding Senior Jazz Musician." These students have always been recognized on perpetual plaques on the walls of the band room until the demolition of the old building. These perpetual plaques are falling apart and haven't been updated in over 10 years!

We are purchasing new plaques to recognize our former students as well as future generations. Each plaque will cost $500 and we are asking for your help to make this possible by contributing to this project. If you are interested in making a donation in any amount please contact Keith Johnson, Director of Bands at keith@echsbands.com. All donations are tax-deductible!
