Prayers for safe travels and good shows today for our indoor groups. Heard County Vision Indoor Percussion performs at South Forsyth HS and the Heard County Winter Guard performs at East Coweta HS. We are very thankful for the percussion and guard staff as they travel with these groups of young men and women. You all represent Heard County with Pride and Class! Go Braves!!!
Black History Month February 1st Ralph Hardimon -I grew up knowing Ralph Hardimon as the guy whose name was on my favorite marching sticks. They are great sticks, but not nearly as great as the man himself. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting RH a couple of times and I’m always amazed at how personable he is. His percussion sections are also among the best ever. Check out this article that gives even more insight to the life of Ralph Hardimon. https://www.pas.org/about/hall-of-fame/ralph-hardimon?fbclid=IwAR2q7FCmvkfQidBQq5IrN0LmEqCmJPJo4j8NlMwYH9WB5cy_ZWgx0YRp5Ek
