2019 RCSHS Marching Band

"All marching band members to report to the Viking Cafe" rang across the public address system at Rowan County Senior High School Thursday morning.

State Rep. Rocky Adkins held a brief special meeting to inform the marching band at RCSHS that they would be participating in next week's inauguration of Governor-elect Andy Beshear.

Principal Brandy Carver submitted the application for the band to participate in the parade.

Adkins said one of the first calls he received from the governor-elect was to chair the inauguration committee.

In being part of that committee, Adkins said he had a "seat at the table" to review applications for entries.

"You've earned this," he told the students. "We'll see you next Tuesday at 10 a.m."
