April 12, 2010 – Katy, Texas – A special presentation was made to the Katy ISD School Board during the recognition of “Music in Our Schools Month”. Each member was presented with a framed photo commemorating the first combined half time show with Taylor High School and Seven Lakes High School students taken by Craig Moseley.

The story behind this collaboration goes back to a car accident, which resulted in the loss of a fine young man who marched in the Seven Lakes Band, named Matthew Schmidt. Matthew’s love of music and marching band, inspired hundreds of students who wanted to support one another during this tragic time and has since created a new level of friendship, respect and love between the students in marching band at Seven Lakes and Taylor.

The presentation to the KISD board members, Superintendent Mr. Alton Frailey and Fine Arts Director Mr. Bob Bryant was an effort to capture this spirit as well as those inspiring moments.  Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
