MHS Band

The Maumelle High School (MHS) Hornet Marching Band is among a handful of Class 5A bands to receive a Superior rating at the Arkansas State Marching Contest. MHS was one of only seven schools to receive this highest possible rating at the competition. This is the school’s first “First Division” award since the State Marching Contest’s inception in 2016. 

“This year’s Hornet Marching Band is honored by this recognition at the State Marching Contest,” said MHS Band Director Kerry Blakemore. “The students and staff have been working on the details of the show since summer and it is rewarding to see all of our work pay off with a Superior rating at State.”

The theme of Maumelle High School’s competition show was “The Cure: A Survivor’s Story.” The show is dedicated to everyone at Maumelle High who has been impacted by cancer.

Congratulations to the Maumelle High School Hornet band members and directors for their hard work and well-deserved success.
