School Board OK’s band trip to Hawaii

April 23, 2014

The Altus Board of Education voted unanimously on Tuesday evening to allow “That Altus Band” to perform in the 75th Pearl Harbor Anniversary Parade in Hawaii in November of 2016.

The motion to approve the band’s fundraising efforts and travel to Hawaii for the 75th Anniversary Parade was made by Dr. John Thomas, with the stipulation that the Band Parent Organization meet all requirements to be sanctioned by the board of education each year and that quarterly updates on the band’s fundraising progress be presented to the board.

Stephen Barnett gave a second and the board members voted 5-0 to pass approve the trip.
