La Vernia Mighty Bear Band is state runner-up!
The La Vernia Mighty Bear Band has brought home second in the state of Texas in the Texas Music Educators Association’s (TMEA) Honor Band competition. Band Director Stacy Clark is proud beyond measure with the performance of her Mighty Bear Band. She would like to personally thank Kelsey Lien and Kyle Fry for all of their hard work and dedication during the 2011-12 school year.
The concept of the Honor Band originated during the term of Joe Frank Sr., who served as Band Division Chair of TMEA from 1958 to 1960. The purpose was twofold. Many educators believed that through the process of hearing and observing the results of quality teaching, directors could develop their own instructional skills to a higher level. In addition, selection of an honor band in each classification recognized communities and school systems that successfully supported music in education through their instrumental music programs.
The many outstanding bands that have followed established procedures through the years and emerged as TMEA Honor Bands are evidence of the strength of the concept and regulations. It is the responsibility of all music educators who participate in the honor band selection process to model their preparation and participation after these exemplary programs.
