The Nashville High School Scrapper Band has spent a week preparing for the upcoming fall marching contests and half-time show. The band attended five days of summer camp in July and August where they worked on marching technique and music. This year’s half-time show is entitled “From The Ashes -– RISE.” According to High School Band director Sara Jo Morris, “The show is based on the music of the popular band Bastille. It will feature short clips of several of their songs and end with their hit ‘Pompeii’. This year’s show should be a lot of fun and a little different. We are playing up the theme of Pompeii with entertaining color guard uniforms and field props.”
In addition to the half-time show the Scrapper Band will also compete in four Marching Contests this fall. The 2014-15 Scrapper Band consists of 44 members and is led by Drum Major Beonka Coburn and a Leadership Team of seven students. Band Directors are Sara Jo Morris and Nathan Evans with Ben Morris assisting with the Drumline and Cassandra Evans directing the Color Guard.

Howard County 4-H recently held a Picnic at the Park program. This program was for the 4-H Cloverbuds, age 5-8, and was based on books written by Eric Carle. Members of the Teen Leaders 4-H Club read books aloud, and then instructed the Cloverbuds in many different crafts that pertained to the books. At the end of the program everyone enjoyed ‘caterpillar’ cupcakes and a sack lunch. If you would like to learn more about 4-H, contact the Howard County Extension Office at 845-7517.

Recently a group of Howard County 4-H members participated in a citizenship program. This was a day-long event in which the members observed court proceedings at the Howard County Courthouse. Judge Charles Yeargan, Circuit Clerk Bobby Jo Green and Prosecuting Attorney Bryan Chesshir spoke to the 4-Hers and answered questions about their careers and job responsibilities. The group then traveled to Old Washington State Park to participate in the Trial by Jury activity. This is an activity in which the 4-Hers were able to reenact, in the 1836 courtroom, an actual murder trial that took place in Old Washington in 1844. They enjoyed playing the many different parts, including the jury members. After the program, tours of the historical cemetery and the B.W. Edwards Weapon Museum were enjoyed. At the end of the day, the 4-H members were able to compare current and past courtroom procedures. They also discussed many different careers in the judicial system. If you would like to learn more about 4-H, contact the Howard County Extension Office at 845-7517.
