Matador Band nominated for national award

(Seguin) --  The Seguin High School Matador Band has been nominated for the 2018 National High School Heart of the Arts Award sponsored by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Seguin High School was nominated for the award by the University Interscholastic League (UIL).

The Matador Band filled in for the Rockport-Fulton High School Band during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey which devastated parts of the Texas coastal bend in August 2017. When the Rockport-Fulton and Leander Glenn football game was played at Matador Stadium in Seguin on Sept. 15, 2017, the Mighty Matador Marching Band was on hand to play and support the Rockport players and families in attendance.

"This was a grassroots effort that involved the entire Seguin community. Not only did the Matador Band learn the Rockport fight song and volunteer to play at the football game, our cheer squads, band boosters, sports boosters, student body and families collaborated to welcome, comfort and assist the Rockport-Fulton High School community," said Stan Mauldin, Seguin ISD director of bands.

The National High School Heart of the Arts Award was created by the NFHS to recognize those individuals who exemplify the ideals of the positive heart of the arts that represent the core mission of education-based activities. This is the fifth year that the National High School Heart of the Arts Award has been offered.

The National High School Heart of the Arts Award is annually conferred to eight section recipients as well as one national recipient. The nine winners will be announced later this spring.
