Piner Middle School Band Has Great All-Region Showing

Piner Middle School Band students competed in the All-Region Band competition on Monday, November 12 and represented with Bearcat Pride. The elite group of musicians, made up of performers from Denison, Allen, Wylie, Rockwall, McKinney, and Lovejoy, will now consist of 11 Piner band students.

More than 1000 students from districts within the region started the process, and only the top five percent received the honor of being selected. Piner Middle School Band students have prepared for the regional competition since August, and their hard work paid off with several members selected to the All-Region Band.
