In 1993, the Trojan Band Program
hardly existed. With only thirteen members, the re-building
process began. Under the direction of Ms. Jeannine Coughlin,
better known as Ms. J.C., the Mighty Marchin' Trojan Band has
become one of the best bands in the state, known nationally
as well as internationally.
The Trojan Band program consists
of three levels of bands: Band 9 for the beginning students,
Varsity band for the intermediate students, and the Mighty
Marchin' Trojan Band and Drum Line. The ultimate goal
for students involved in the band program is to earn a position
within the Mighty Marchin' Trojan Band.
Accomplishments by the Trojan Band:
Rebuilt a program of thirteen students
to well over two hundred.
Traveled as far away as Atlanta, Georgia;
Hampton, Virginia; and Knoxville Tennessee for competition,
earning first place ratings.
Congressional Recognition for Washington,
D.C. in 2001.
Trojan Drum Line featured in the opening
ceremonies for the PGA Ryder Cup Tournament in Bloomfield Hills,
Michigan in September, 2005.
