NEISD Bands Win Top Honors at Regional Competition in Conroe

Reagan Band

Congratulations to the Reagan High School Band, which took home all caption awards and the Gold Medal at the 2016 Bands of America Conroe Regional Oct. 1.  

“The students in the Reagan Band program work incredibly hard every day to perform at a high level. Our goal is always to be the best version of ourselves possible, and I think we achieved that on Saturday. I could not be more proud!" said Daniel Morrison, Reagan band director.  

Additionally, NEISD had three bands place in the top five in finals for the first time in more than 4 years. Reagan, Johnson (which placed second) and Churchill performed in the last three slots at Saturday's evening competition, which made a strong statement about the vibrancy of band and fine arts in the district.  Only two other school districts in all of Texas have had three or more schools make finals at these regionals on a regular basis (Leander ISD and Lewisville ISD).   What a coup for the NEISD!
