RHS Band qualifies for state, seeks funding

Posted on October 25, 2021 12:19 PM


The Russellville High School Marching Panthers have qualified for State Class AA competition this Friday in Lexington! Trevor Cardwell is the director.

Band boosters have issued the following plea:

“This is amazing, as these kids have faced an incredibly hard season. The kids are super excited, as this was very unexpected and they worked extremely hard to get here.

“The problem we are having is that many families in the district cannot afford the travel to get the kids to state. With Covid, fundraising has been difficult the last year to say the least.

“We are reaching out to local businesses to ask if anyone would be interested in sponsoring our travel to state. Any amount is welcome!

“Our charter bus is going to cost approximately $3,500, and hotel stay for Friday night for 60-plus kids is going to be upwards of $2,600.

“Thank you in advance for always supporting this great group of kids. To say they truly deserve it would be an understatement!
