Students and staff members of the Weatherford High School Fightin' Roo Marching Band were recognized at Thursday's WISD School Board meeting for earning a seventh consecutive Division I rating at the Region 7 Marching Contest.
Marching bands compete at the state level every other year, as mandated by the University Scholastic League. The Fightin' Roo Band could not advance any further this year, but Director James Buckner said he was proud his group received Division I ratings by all three judges.
