Finneytown Marching Band Achieves Grand Champion...Again!

Finneytown Marching Band competed in the Forest Hills Band Invitational where they earned Grand Champion, the highest award of the contest. Additionally, they received Best Color Guard, Best Percussion, and Best Music. There were 11 other bands at the contest, including Deer Park and Madeira as well as class AA schools West Clermont and Walnut Hills.  Finneytown is a Class B school district, but that has not stopped the Band from achieving Grand Champion for the second time this year. The tremendous effort the marching band has exhibited this year is truly paying in dividends as the band continues to achieve. They received extraordinary support from fellow students, parents, teachers, administration, and community to achieve this outstanding success this year. Mike Kennedy, Band Director stated, “I am extremely proud of the work ethic that our students have put into action; with hard work you can achieve anything.”
