October of 2013 was the last time that the M3 Band competed at UIL marching contest. At that time, the band received a three under the direction of then band director Ray Lavan. The five or so years prior to that, the band always left contest with a 4 or 5 rating from a scale of 1 being best to 5 being not so good.
After 7 years of not competing, the M3 Band came away with a TWO!!
Congratulations to the members of the band and directors Tommy Gladney, Mr. Jeran King and Mrs. Becky McMillen.
The band now moves on to compete in several Battle of the Bands. The first is in Lake Charles on October 30 and they will host their own on November 6.
