  • Return of the Eagles

    After not competing for the past three school years, Campbellsville High School's marching band is back.

    Last year, CHS hired Zach Shelton to take over the band program after Jaime Smith, who had been band director since 2005, accepted a position at LaRue County High School. Shelton completed his music education degree in May 2008 at Campbellsville University. At CU, he was involved in the chorus, orchestra, marching band, jazz band and other activities.

  • KUDO: Welcome back, Marching Eagles

    After three years' hiatus, the Campbellsville Marching Eagles are back, and we're glad to see it.

    Band teaches kids more than just music. Marching band is about teamwork and dedication, the same as other extracurricular groups. Sports aren't for all kids, which is why band is an important addition to any school's list of activities.

    We wish you luck, Marching Eagles, and we'll be watching!
