John Philip Sousa Award
Congratulations to seniors Josh Rausch and Gaylon Grant for receiving the 2006 John Philip Sousa Award from the Fairbanks Band! This is a national award sponsored by the Instrumentalist Magazine and is given in most every high school in the United States. At Fairbanks, the award winners are chosen by the membership of the band. Josh and Gaylon have both been outstanding musicians, as well as leaders and role models during their years in the Fairbanks band program. Best of luck to both of them in the future. The John Philip Sousa Award page will be updated soon to reflect the newest winners. The last time there was a tie for this award at FHS was in 1968!
