As a band parent of an OVAC All-Star band member, I was very disappointed in the OVAC failure to recognize these kids, that worked very hard to put on a great halftime show at the All-Star football game Sunday night. At the rally Saturday, the senior band members were not recognized by even receiving a certificate. The football, cheerleaders and queen of queen candidates all received a certificate. These band members arrived at camp Wednesday morning, received their music and learned a whole halftime show by Sunday. But no one took the time to give them the respect that they deserve.

You do not have to announce every band member, but at least recognize the seniors, for most of them, this will be the last time they get to march out on the football field.

I hope next year the OVAC will recognize these very talented band members.
