The Hazelwood West High School Marching Wildcats will be marching in the Inauguration Parade in Jefferson City on Jan. 14 at the invitation of State Treasurer Clint Zwiefel. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m.
According to Aaron Jackson, band director, elected officials may invite a band to participate. Zwiefel is a Hazelwood West High School alumnus.
Jackson said the band will be performing a selection of songs from their show “Shadows.”
This is the second time the band will be participating in the parade; they also participated in the 2008 Inauguration Parade.
“The students and I are very excited to have the honor of participating in the Inauguration Parade,” said Jackson. “It’s something that we all take a lot of pride in. We are looking forward to representing our school at such a prestigious event.”
