Two Clayton High School seniors were recognized this week by Clayton Mayor Jody McLeod and the Clayton Town Council.
Isha Henry and Megan Whitfield were selected to participate in the nation’s premier high school All-American Marching Band. Selected by the National Association for Music Education in cooperation with All American Games and Drum Corps International, the students selected are considered to be among the 125 top marching band members in the United States.
In January, Henry and Whitfield traveled to San Antonio, Texas to perform during halftime at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Not only did the two seniors get to perform at the Alamodome to a crowd of 40,000 people broadcast by NBC, their bowl week in Military City USA was all expenses paid and they received instruction from top collegiate color guard instructors.
Henry and Whitfield were nominated last year by the Clayton High School Band Director and Color Guard instructor for the All American Marching Band.
