Kemp High School Band students had a great showing in the Association of Texas Small School Bands (A.T.S.S.B.) Region 3 All-Region auditions on Monday December 3rd. Over 20 1A-4A school districts compete in Region 3 with approximately 500 students in attendance. We had 23 students compete in the contest and had several of them earn a chair in one of the All–Region Bands. These students will be traveling to Canton in January to be a part of one of the greatest region bands in the state. Please congratulate these students on a very fine job.
