Director of Bands Brendan Johnson claims Jimmy had to be one of our smallest members ever when I first met him. It was quite wonderful to see Jimmy develop into the man he is today. Jimmy was someone who constantly used good manners and shown a great deal of falcon pride in his daily activities. In our marching band, Jimmy began on the cymbals and progressed to every drum in the percussion line. I wanted to repay Jimmy's family for their generous support of our excellent program by doing everything in my power to secure Jimmy's enrollment in the school of his choice.
Jimmy departed in August 2022 to begin his journey with the South Carolina State University Marching 101 Band. Join us in wishing him well and congratulating him on such an outstanding achievement.
