I have to confess.  I am a little jealous about this.  A Daviess County High School student gets the chance to march in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this November!

This is Trent Woolard, a senior at DCHS.  He has been invited to perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City on Nov. 28.

Here's how this happened, according to Daviess County Public Schools.  Trent submitted a video audition for consideration.  He had to play a musical piece and a demonstrate his marching technique.  He must have nailed that audition.

Woolard was selected and will play the tuba in the parade.  Not only does he get the honor (and super cool experience) of marching in the parade, but he'll get to tour the Big Apple as well!

Trent will head out for NYC on Nov. 23 to begin rehearsals with the parade band.  Then you can catch him on Thanksgiving Day live on NBC!
