Agenda for Tuesday, December 17, 2019 City Council Meeting

Council honors JHS band for Class 5A state title

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

Jasper City Council members honored the Jasper High Viking band during Tuesday morning’s city council meeting. 

The band, under the direction of Jason Lipscomb, won its second straight Class 5A state championship at the 2019 Alabama State Marching Championships held Nov. 2 in Pelham. 

The band won five preliminary awards — outstanding  color guard, outstanding percussion, outstanding music performance, outstanding visual performance and outstanding general effect — before being named state champion. The band competed against six other high school bands from across the state that were invited to the competition.

 “Thank you for the great job you’ve done in representing Jasper High School, and thank you for the great job representing this city,” Jasper Mayor David O’Mary told band members on hand for Tuesday’s meeting. “I’m so proud of each one of you.”

“The trophy we won is just a consequence of the hard work these kids have put in all year,” Lipscomb said. “It’s not about showing up one day and doing a great job. It’s about the consistency of being a champion every day.”

The Viking band, which also won the 2018 Class 5A state championship in Muscle Shoals, is made up of 175 students in eighth through 12th grade.
