The Marching Statemen's next performance will be at Homecoming

Friday, October 18th will be The Marching Statemen's next performance, at Marshall High's own Jimmy Miller Stadium 

Parents, we still need some help to make this performance happen, especially with the prop crew at the competition, which is an easy job and no experience is necessary. Remember, if you enter with the band as a volunteer, you don't have to pay!

Please sign up to volunteer here: SignUpGenius

We would also love spectators. Come and cheer for our team and see the Marching Statesmen perform at Halftime during Marshall's Homecoming Varsity Football Game, versus Justice High School.
