The sounds of future success wafted through the air inside the Ruston High School Auditorium Wednesday afternoon.
That happened as five graduating RHS seniors signed scholarships to become part of the Louisiana Tech University Band.
Their hard work has provided them paid books and tuition along with the opportunity with the chance to pick up a little extra funding should they push to earn a band service award or by participating in a side group like Tech’s Concert Ensemble or the “Hoop Troop.”
Earning scholarships to join Tech’s Band of Pride, with band duties and intended major in parenthesis, were RHS graduates Abigail Terry (Color Guare/Accounting); Nicholas Palmer (Trumpet; Forestry); Brendan Hood (Percussion; Forestry); Bryton Breeding (Clarinet/Electrical Engineering) and Alexander Atassi (Percussion/Computer Science with a minor in Music).
