Congratulations to the Keller High School Band - UIL State Marching Band Finalist

The Keller High School Marching Band earned a tenth place finish at the UIL 6A State Marching Band Contest in San Antonio on November 4.

Congratulations to the students, parents, and Keller High community on an unforgettable season! And thank you to directors Mark McGahey, Ryan Heath, Frank Chapple, Daniel Bloss, and the entire marching band staff for your dedication to the Keller Band Program!
