Henderson Middle School eighth-grade students Jalen Burwell and Crystal Marrow were recently selected to attend and participate in the 2014 Virginia Tech Honor Band clinic from Jan. 24-26.

They will attend rehearsals and go through intensive training with the music faculty at Virginia Tech and other music professionals.

The students were chosen out of 1,500 band students from more than 200 schools across seven states.

Burwell and Marrow are currently raising funds to help cover the cost of the event. Donations may be sent to the attention of Trevor Rorie of the Henderson Middle School Band Program at 219 Charles Street, Henderson, N.C. 27536.
