With all The Star's coverage of traditional team sports and athlete spotlights, it would be nice to see profiles on marching band students.

Between the daily three-hour practice after school, supporting two events a weekend (one band competition, one football game), not to mention the mandatory summer camp and practicing at home -- our marching-band kids put in as much (or more) time than sports teams.

They are also true TEAM players and are great examples of leaders, with mentorship a key aspect of their craft. Winchester Star, it's 2019, not 1969 -- lets come around to highlighting musicians, artists, and stellar students with the same gusto as we do with traditional athletics.
