Panola College hosted two band camps in summer 2017, and participated in a third camp held at Elysian Fields High School. Five members of the Panola College Band braved the summer heat to help out. Ore City High School brought 90 band students and faculty to the college campus from July 24-27. Beckville High School brought 100 band students and staff for a camp running from July 31 through August 3.

“This summer has definitely been an active one for us,” said Dwaine Hubbard, Panola College Band Director. “These two high schools were preparing for football games and pep rallies, so we were grateful to have help from our talented college band members.”

Carrie Hudman, freshman from New Caney, and Derrick Wade Weaver, freshman from Beckville, taught band students during the Beckville camp. Sophomores Urias Quetzala, Montana Woodard, Savana Hanaway, and Dakota Brown worked as staff at Elysian Fields High School camp.

“All of these students are music majors at Panola College,” said Hubbard. “Working these camps helps them understand the challenges they will face as band directors. We are grateful to James Bogs at Beckville High School and Jeremy Hendrix at Elysian Fields for working with these great Panola College band students.”
