NORTH COBB HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND 2015-2016


I am so excited about the upcoming marching season.  The staff has worked very hard to plan a program that will be both exciting to perform and entertaining to watch.  If we all work together, I feel certain that we will have one of the best halftime shows of all time.  New students and parents, you are in for a wonderful journey.  Veteran parents and students, you know how much pride we all feel as the band enters the field.  Get ready for an amazing season.  It is a great time to be a Warrior.

 

Sincerely,

Greg Williams

Director of Bands
