Congratulations to the George Walton Academy Marching Bulldog Band for taking first place in the Group VI Open division of the USSBA Southern States band competition this past weekend in Chattanooga. My elder daughter, Madeline, is a member of the color guard. They put on a fantastic show, winning caption awards for overall effect, percussion, and music. They also won the Marine Corps Esprit de Corps award. Way to go, band!
