A pair of Hays High seniors had reason to jump for joy as they became the first band members from the school since 2017 to earn All-State status. Hays High senior trumpet player Jackie Gibson and senior french horn player Aidan Frohock both earned high placement in their sections at the Area E Auditions, held Jan. 9 at Westlake High, to qualify for the Texas Music Educators’ Association (TMEA) All-State Band. The Hays High band program is led by director John Rauschuber.

For the second straight year, a Johnson Jaguar Band low brass player has achieved All-State status. Johnson High junior trombonist Travis Miller earned high placement in his section at the Area E Auditions, held Jan. 9 at Westlake High, to qualify for the Texas Music Educators’ Association (TMEA) All-State Band. Miller is also the second straight Johnson High band student to earn the All-State distinction, joining tuba player Parker Taylor who earned All-State in 2020. Miller is among a group of roughly 1,800 band students from across Texas who were selected as All-State. In total, more than 70,000 musicians from across the state began the season by auditioning at Region competitions this past fall. The Johnson High Band is led by director Joey Lucita.
