Saugus Band Members Selected for Rose Parade
Four members of the Saugus High School Band and Color Guard have been selected for the Tournament of Roses Honor Band.

The four will join exceptional high school musicians from across Southern California who will march in the Rose Parade in Pasadena on New Year's Day. Saugus members, selected by audition, include Thomas Callier, trumpet; Aaron Huffman, tuba; Michael Taylor, alto sax: and Akaila Ballard, color guard.

The Honor Band auditions over 600 high school students for more than 200 positions in the band and pageantry. Robert Gibson is the faculty director of the band at Saugus.

Learning, Service Go Hand in Hand
It's hard to imagine a more hands-on career-oriented course than the Basics in Forestry and Trail Construction class offered by the Hart District's Regional Occupational Program.

Students enrolled in the course are taught principles of outdoor safety, emergency response, navigation, trail construction and environmental stewardship. At the same time, students are completing more than 100 hours of local service in the areas of wilderness resource management and conservation.

The unique partnership with various federal and local agencies also offers paid training and internship opportunities to participating students.
