55 AMS Band Students Place at Regional Event
Aledo Middle School band members scored 55 spots in the Region 7 competition last week. These students competed against 800 other musicians from 20 schools in the region. With only 200 positions available, AMS students from the Honor Winds and Symphonic Winds claimed almost 25 percent.

I am really proud of all the hard work these students invested. They represented not only our school, but the entire community in a positive way,” said AMS Band Director Joey Qualls. “The students who went through this process came out of it as better musicians.”

The following qualified for Region Symphonic Band: Walker Beddingfield, Avery Betancourt, Jett Bowlin, Colton Bryan, Clayton Crawford, Ben Denman, Richard Farmer, McKenli Faulkner, Alaina Gardner, Trevor Garrison, Steven Haxel, Mackenzie Hodges, Francesca Koenig, Sean Laing, Nicholas Leeper, Benjamin Martin, Michael McQuade, Wyatt Mott, Hector Olazaran, Andrew Pennington, Landon Rossi, Grace Thompson, Tanya Van, Max Wegner and Katherine Wood.
