STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

Congratulations to Anne Holland(March) and Sam Dickhaut(April) on being selected as our BBHHS Band Students of the Month!

Anne Holland has always been super kind, helpful, and prepared for rehearsal. She has taken on a mentoring role to younger percussionists and always leads by example. Anne participates in many facets of the band program including the Marching Bees, Symphonic Crimson, Pep Band, and Indoor Drumline.

Sam Dickhaut has been a great asset to Symphonic Gold. He is always on task in rehearsal, puts in time outside of class to be prepared for rehearsal, and seeks out help from directors to better his musicianship. Additionally, Sam has donated his time 2nd semester to set up for daily rehearsals.
