On November 23, 2017, sophomore Allison H. marched in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. She was selected as one of America’s finest high school musicians from across the United States to play in the Great American Macy’s Band. The band was under the direction of Auburn University’s Dr. Richard Good and consisted of 185 school musicians that were carefully chosen after a lengthy audition process. Allison and fellow band members stepped-off from New York's Central Park with three million spectators lining the parade route. Cheered by many, the band arrived at Macy’s Herald Square and performed for celebrity hosts, a grandstand audience, and more than 50 million tv viewers.
