For the second year in a row the DeKalb County High School Fighting Tiger Marching Band has received an invite to the state championship. Band Director Don Whitt says the band will be performing first at the 42nd Annual Tennessee Division II State Marching Band Championship.
“We have a tremendous team of people that we work with,” Director Whitt said. “We will have to be on our A game regardless of when we go on. We are going up against some very talented bands. I am very humbled and honored to be able to not only work with such an amazing team of students but also to represent DeKalb County and its community. We have so many things to be proud of including our band boosters, teachers, and administration.
The state championship will take place November 4th at Stewarts Creek High School.
