To the editor:
It begins in July; spending ten hour days learning drill, practicing music, setting formations, feeling the sweltering heat rising from the asphalt in the high school parking lot. Watching as practices begin and end for others while these kids are still pushing through, from early morning until after dusk. It will soon be drawing to a close in the blistering wind and freezing rain. It takes time, dedication, and commitment. I am talking about Marching Band and Harrison County High School has a rich tradition in this arena.
