SOUTH JONES BAND BRINGS HOME ANOTHER CHAMPIONSHIP

The South Jones Band of Braves won best in class at Oak Grove High School’s “Groovin in the Grove,” West Harrison High School’s “Hurricane Classic,” had the highest overall score at the MHSAA Region III State Marching Evaluation in Scooba, Mississippi.  The Band of Braves completed their competition season by winning the US Bands Class V Open Southern States Championship in Chattanooga Tennessee on November 1.  This final competition in Chattanooga included 30 bands from across the Southeastern United States.

This year’s show concept was set in ancient Roman times where a man and his wife were separated, and he was enslaved to the entertainment of the arena.  The show is full of lots of theatrics including ten Roman columns placed on the football field.  The show had three movements entitled “Call to Battle,” “Broken Love,” and “Final Victory.” 

Head director Artie Adams was quoted “Our students performed beyond all expectations this marching season.  In my 27 years as a band director, I have never had a group work with more dedication and focus than these students.” Additional band staff are 
Brian Joyce, Johnathan Benson, Amber Flynt, and Patrick Hand.

boys state students

South Jones High School has three delegates that participated in Boys State this summer at Mississippi State University. Through the week-long program, the young citizens learn how city, county and state governments function by actually doing the job themselves. The purpose of American Legion Boys State is to identify young leaders and instill in them constructive attitudes toward the American form of government.  The South Jones delegates are Colton Lott, John Ethan Hughes, and Cory Skellion.  South Jones is very proud of these young men.
