The Ooltewah High School band has been invited to the State Capital by State Representative Mike Carter to be presented in legislative session on Monday at 5 p.m. CT a Governor’s Proclamation recognizing the band being outstanding representatives for the state.
Officials said, "This honor is a result of hundreds of phone calls, emails, and letters to the state capitol and Rep. Carter praising our band’s performance in the 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade."
Each member of the band will also receive a citation from Rep. Carter. This will be done with the entire band on the floor of the House Chamber. This will mark the first time a band has ever been honored in this manner.
