Congratulations to Mountain Ridge Band Students Ellie Wiemeyer and Danny Carrera!
Ellie and Danny were chosen through national audition as members of the elite Army All-American Marching Band. These kids, from all over the US are flown in and housed by the US Army to San Antonio and the Alamodome for the High School Army All-American Football game on January 5th, 2013. In the span of one day they will learn and perfect a halftime show that will be televised at the High School Army All-American Football game.
Ellie and Danny are the ONLY Arizona students selected to this elite group this year. They are also the fourth and fifth MRHS students recognized with this prestigious honor since the All-American program was started six years ago. Last year Ridge Band seniors Alexandra Brooks and Jamieson Berry proudly represented Mountain Ridge High School as US Army All Americans. Congratulations Ellie and Danny!
