Congrats To The South Cobb High School Marching Blue Eagles. . .

. . . On their selection by The Presidential Inaugural Committee to perform in the 56th Inaugural Parade.

Monday was a good day to be in the band at South Cobb High School.

The Blue Eagles Marching Band was selected by The Presidential Inaugural Committee to perform in the 56th Inaugural Parade on Jan. 20 in Washington, D.C.

The 95-member marching band will be the only Georgia presence in the parade, slated to follow the swearing-in of President-elect Barack Obama.

Now, according to South Cobb principal Grant Rivera, the band must raise $71,000 to make the trip.
