Byrnes Band Student Awarded Scholarship

A Byrnes High School band student is playing a happy tune after winning a major college scholarship!

Michael Blackwell, a senior trombone player, won the 2016 Limestone College Honor Band Clinic competition, earning a $20,000 scholarship to the college in the process!  Blackwell can use the funds to major in music at the school.

Limestone College band director, Ryan Williams, along with District Five Fine Arts Director Matthew Wofford, delivered the check to Blackwell at Byrnes this week.

Congratulations Michael Blackwell!
