8th Grade MHS Pride in Motion Marching Band

A select few 8th graders were given the opportunity to march with the Mooresville High School Pride in Motion Marching Band, and boy did they do a fantastic job! The Pride in Motion went to their SouthEast Regional competition this past weekend, making finals for the second time in a row, and finishing as a top 11 group (top group from NC!!!) at the event that featured bands from NC, SC, TN, GA, and FL. They had their best performance of the season, and I'm extremely proud of the 8th graders who joined about 1/4 into the season. They learned all the movements and drill sets, and worked so hard to do well for their peers.


These students worked really hard over the past two months, and had an amazing final performance. We are extremely proud of their hard work. Congrats:
