Two members of JHS marching band get national honor

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Two senior members of the Jonesboro High School marching band will be a part of an American tradition. Jacob Cullison and Cody Hutchison were selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band.

The two will be a part of the 125 member band that will play at the All-American Bowl in January. Jacob and Cody were chosen from high school applicants all across the country.

Cullison and Hutchison are the fourth and fifth students from Jonesboro to make the band. Hutchison, who plays the baritone, said getting picked is an amazing honor.

"I just feel really honored to have been blessed with this incredible opportunity and I am really really exited for it," Hutchison told Region 8 News. "I am looking forward to playing. It's going to be awesome, it's going to be the biggest place I have ever performed at."

Cullison, a trumpet player, said a lot went into getting this honor.

"6 years of practice, working every day after school," Cullison said. "And then when the auditions came we had the music and that was hard enough alone. And then learning the music, memorizing that , marching the block while playing it."

The high school football game will be played in the Alamo Dome in San Antonio on January 7th.
