Four Students from the Becker High School band were selected to attend the Central MN Band Director's Association 9-10 grade Honor Band on Saturday, January 16 in Elk River, MN. The students, Grace Brown (10), Sierra Vilmo (10), Austin Seavert (9) and Michelle Johnson (9) were nominated by their Band Director, Craig Vogl and chosen based on merit and previous band-related accomplishments. 8 total students from Becker were nominated, so the competition was quite fierce. Students from all over central MN converged on Elk River High School and rehearsed all day, stopping for two short breaks and lunch. They performed a concert at 5 P.M. with a band that was made up of students from all over the state. These four students did an excellent job representing themselves, their school, and their community. They worked very hard and the concert sounded awesome as a result of that hard work.
