The Class would like to thank Jason McPeak and the Checotah Shop Class for our awesome Percussion Trailer.

Also a special thanks goes out to Gary Cotner and the CHS Band Parents for all your help this marching season.

A tribute to our veterans!

.

Thank you for all you do!

.

.

.

The Class of Checotah recognized a very special hometown Veteran on the last seasonal game.  Mr. Albert Tate died one year ago and the band recognized him and his wife at the game by releasing 80 red, white and blue balloons and by playing Danny Boy in his memory.

His wife, Elizabeth Tate, excepted the plaque on his behalf.
