The Franklin High School band has built quite the reputation over the years, marching in parades all across the eastern seaboard and competing in national competitions. Now, as the fall season approaches, anybody passing the high school may be able to hear the sounds of drums echoing from the school grounds as the members carry out practice drills in their attempt at perfection.
Not only does the band hammer out tunes every Friday night in support of the school's football team, they also strive for their own goals. This year, they are definitely competing in two national events with perhaps something bigger in the works according to band director, Buddy Huckabee. For now however, he will focus on the 74 members of the band and their immediate future.
