Opening Knight 2012 - Slideshow

Post date: Sep 17, 2012 11:12:20 PM

We became a band in June. We became a family on Opening Knight!

Words cannot express how thankful I am to be a part of such an incredible organization.

Boosters > It truly takes a village! We would not have the largest and most well-run show in Cavalcade without your sacrifice! This was the best Opening Knight that I have been a part of because of YOU!!!!! Thank you for your commitment, professionalism, and unyielding support that is the backbone of HMK!

Staff > We have the best staff that you will ever find - thank you for all that you do for our students. The role that each of you play in the development of our kids is more than meets the eye. I'm honored that you are part of this organization!


Members > THANK YOU for your commitment to excellence! I'd be willing to bet that you will remember the ovation that you received from the STUDENT SECTION following your performance on Saturday for the rest of your life! Your excellence compelled your COMPETITORS to give you a standing ovation!

If you continue to work hard and strive for excellence, then the payoff on Saturday night is just the beginning! We must continue to strive to BE GREAT at everything that we do!


Looking ahead...
