Centennial Marching Band Receives Superior Rating

On October 17th, the Centennial Marching Band participated in the 2020 IHSMA “Virtual” State Marching Band Festival, where they received a Division I “Superior” rating.  This is the highest rating that a high school marching band can receive at this festival.  This is the 7th consecutive year in which they have received this rating.  To participate, the band submitted a video of their 2020 show “Lift Your Heart & Voice”, which was then adjudicated by a panel of judges from across the state of Iowa.  “I am so proud of all of the hard work the students put in this year in order to not only put together a fantastic show, but to also take care of each other and keep each other safe every day. The students went above and beyond all expectations and I couldn’t be prouder of them!”- Scott Hook, director.  The Centennial High School Marching Band consists of 200 students in grades 9-12 and is directed by Scott Hook, Nick Rueckert, Janelle Hook, Marcus Price, Mary Harris and Jake Thieben.  Congratulations!
