Top Honor for a North Collins Music Student

March 8, 2011 Updated Mar 8, 2011 at 6:54 PM EDT

North Collins, NY (WKBW)

The North Collins School system has a top-flight band member being nationally recognized!

Zach Haas (a junior trombonist) was selected for the Music Educators National Conference (MENC) National Honors Band. He will be performing in Washington D.C. in June. Zach was selected from applicants all around the United States and only a few are chosen from New York. North Collins is a smaller district in the South towns and this is a great source of pride for them.

Zach Haas is looking for some sponsorship for his trip...if you'd like to help, call Jill Dueringer, the North Collins Director of Bands at 866-8557 or e-mail at JDUERINGER@northcollins.wnyric.org
