On Monday, 11 students from the CHS Band participated in the Oregon Trail Honor Band at Gering High School.

The honor band has grown from 42 students and 5 schools nine years ago to 84 students and 15 schools in this years band.
This year's participants from Chadron were Matt Kerner, Simon Rischling, Harlie Kennell, Kaylee Garvin, Gabe Ramos, Marquis Burwell, Chace Franey, Hannah Kennell, Hunter Hawk, Sam Rischling, and Kat Dodd.
