Earlham High School Jazz Band Earns 1st Place Distinction at the Simpson College Jazz Festival

The Earlham High School Jazz Band participated in the Simpson College Jazz Festival on Thursday, January 28th.  The other Class 2A bands involved in the festival included Des Moines Christian, Prairie City Monroe, Ogden, Roland Story, and Woodward-Granger High Schools.  The jazz band's performance earned them the 1st Place distinction in Class 2A.  The festival judges also recognized individual students as "Outstanding Performers."  This recognition was given to Stephen Woolcott (bass guitar), Anna Kroeger (drum set), Josh Smith (piano), Grant Becker (guitar), Holly Partlow (trumpet), and Austin Griswold (alto saxophone).  Congrats to the students on a great performance, and thank you for being a great representation of our school and community.
