This year, RJHS hosted the Arkansas School Band and Orchestra Region IX Junior High Band tryouts. Over 800 students and directors visited the building during tryouts.

For the third consecutive year, the Russellville Middle and Junior High Bands have had the most students of any school in the region to make the all-region band. We had nine seventh-graders, 32 eighth-graders, and 50 ninth-graders make the region band, for a grand total of 91 and 12 alternates. Conway had the second most students at 70.

We are so proud of our band students!
