Ismael has qualified to area competition in January. He will be competing with other 4A percussionists for a final shot for the 4A state band.
“The band is extremely proud of the six students who competed in Alice and even more so with the three region band members. They exhibit the pride and education at A.C. Jones,” said Jaime Vela, head director of the Mighty Trojan Band.
