Senior Receives Band Scholarship

Nevil BANN

On Saturday, November 3, 2018, the Blue Wave Marching Band participated in the Class 3A Tournament of Bands Championships at West Shore Stadium. After dueling against 11 area high school bands, the Blue Wave ended the evening with a 4th place finish.

As awards were distributed after the competition, the band was surprised to learn that one of their very own, Tim Nevil, Blue Wave President, was the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship from the National Judges Association. Students in participating bands were eligible to apply. Tim’s application was reviewed by the Scholarship Committee of the National Judge’s Association, and he was one of 3 band students chosen to receive this scholarships at the Group 3A Championships. Over $30,000 was distributed in scholarship funds this year. Mr. Justin Smith presented the check to Tim at the Class A Championships.

If you are wondering why Tim looks familiar to you, he is one of the “Tims” who hosts the Raider Newscast with TIM&tim. The Raider Newscast crew surprised him by including his award in the November 14, 2018 episode. You can view all Raider Newscasts here.
