New Commemorative Band Award Established
The first recipient of the new band award, the John Wayne Haddock Memorial Award for Valor, Honor, and Loyalty was presented at the recent Band Awards Breakfast. Band Director Barry Rogers stated, “This award serves to recognize an outstanding citizen in the community for their loyalty to the Grenada Band Program. Captain Haddock selflessly volunteered his time and effort the the Grenada Band and its students. He expected nothing in return but the success of the students. His love of our community and its citizens serves as an example for us all.”
The first recipient to receive the John Wayne Haddock Award is Jackye Britt, a band volunteer since 1978. Her children and grandchildren have participated in the band program. Jackye still volunteers even though she currently has not immediate family in the band.
