The James F. Byrnes Band Program has earned the Outstanding Performance Award for 2016-17. This is the top award that can be given to band programs in South Carolina. Only about 15% of band programs in the state earn this award.

The award is achieved by earning points in Marching Band, Symphonic Band, All-Region/All-State Band, and Solo & Ensemble. We earned the maximum 100 out of 100 points.

We are also very proud of Berry Shoals and Florence Chapel Bands for winning this award as well in the Junior Division.

Way to go District 5 Bands!!!
