MR. ROGERS AND MARCHING BAND HONORED AT BOARD MEETING
Dave Rogers, Director of Bands at Walled Lake Central High School, was honored at the Feb 6, 2014 WL School Board meeting for his achievement with the Viking Marching Band. State Representative Klint Kesto and Lynne O'Brien from Senator Mike Kowall's office read a "Special Tribute" on behalf of the State of Michigan, citing, "With three State Championships in four years and the incredibly high score this year at Ford Field, this group of disciplined student-musicians has generated great pride throughout this part of our state."
In addition, Mr. Rogers received the Teacher of the Year Award for Walled Lake Central High School.
We are so proud of Mr. Rogers and his Viking Marching Band!
