Central High School Band performs in Washington D.C. 

The Central High School (CHS) Band traveled to Washington D.C. to perform on the National Mall at the Lincoln Memorial on April 6. 

CHS band director Michael Maxton said the trip allowed the students to see how their hard work is appreciated in places outside of Tuscaloosa.“The opportunity to lead a band that performed in our nation’s capital is once in a lifetime,” he said. 

In addition to the performance, the band enjoyed touring many of the city’s historical sites.

CHS drum major Caleb Boyd said his favorite parts of the trip were touring the Smithsonian Museum and seeing the White House, which has always been a dream of his. 

Boyd’s dream was made a reality in part by the generosity of community members who donated a total of $10,800 to the band’s GoFundMe. Thanks to these donations, 46 band members were able to attend the trip. 

“It meant everything to have the opportunity to attend this trip because these are things that some students can only dream of,” Boyd said.

"CHS eSports finished the season with a doubleheader win on Thursday, April 11, against Northridge High and Hazel Green High. Our dynamic freshman Khaison Witherspoon burned up the pitch backed by two of our senior players, DeAndre Ware and John Kunkle. This is the Falcons 4th season competing in AHSAA Rocket League and they posted a 5-3 overall record (17-12 match record) along with participating in the inaugural District V eSports Tournament at Thompson High. Go Falcons!"

Our Falcons made their rounds to our feeder schools to speak to some amazing elementary school students for Read Across America Week! Our Fabulous Falcons visited Central Elementary, Martin Luther King Elementary, Oakdale Elementary, TASPA, and University Place Elementary Schools. We love to see our wonderful students give back!
