Powell County Marching Band To Play In New York's Parade

Posted: Updated:

POWELL COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) The Powell County High School marching band is preparing to play in the Veterans Day Parade in New York City. 

"We get along, we fight, but in the end, we're still here. It's shown me that love is thicker than blood," said Powell County Senior Katelyn Powell. 

The band is a family of sorts. Practice is key for them. They put in a lot of work, but also have a lot of fun.

"They really put a lot of time in, a lot of dedication. We call it blood, sweat, and tears, and a whole lot of sweat," said Band Director Michael Estep.

Their efforts have paid off and on Saturday, their music will fill the streets of New York City.

"I didn't think that I would ever get to go to New York, especially being from Powell County. It's not a trip that most people will ever get to have coming from here, so it's a huge opportunity," said Delaney Epperson, a Powell County senior.

"My cousin is in the military, and my grandfather was in the military, so it's just a really big opportunity for me and for Powell County to show that we're not just Powell County, we're bigger than that. We can be bigger," said Powell.

The band would like to thank the community of Powell County who raised $50,000 to fund the students' trip.
