IRONHEAD TRAVEL TO DISNEY WORLD
The Pride of Eufaula traveled to Orlando, Florida to perform at Universal Studios. In order to perform in this venue, the band was required to send in an audition video. They were selected to perform by the Universal Studios Orlando STARZ Program. “This is an amazing honor as we took 45 high school band and color guard students,” explained Rusty Helms, EHS band director. “The Universal STARZ staff said (and I quote) “Eufaula HS Band is one of the most organized bands they have ever had perform in their park!”
The students were accompanied by 14 adults who helped ensure the safety of the students during the duration of the trip. The group visited Disney World, Universal Studios and Cocoa Beach.
“This is a “once in a lifetime” trip and we are forever grateful to all who helped make this happen,” said Helms. “We would like to thank the Eufaula Administration, School Board, Staff, Parents and the Students for making this trip possible. Eufaula is the best place to be!”
The Pride is under the direction of Rusty Helms, Michelle Barnes, Amber Singleton and Adam Lynn.
