Noelle Abend and Hayden Schapeler, both senior band members at Rich Hill High School, auditioned to be in the National FFA Band and were accepted.
They had to audition and compete against other members in all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. It is an incredible honor to be selected out of the thousands of applicants. Noelle and Hayden will be traveling to Indianapolis, Indiana in October to perform at Lucas Oil Stadium and other venues around the city.
This is also Hayden’s second time making the band. Miss Klinksick, their band director, is extremely proud of their efforts and dedication to her program and is incredibly excited for them to perform!
