Strike up the band! South Walton High band director Ethan Mitchell and the Seahawk Sounds marching band were awarded $25,000 in grant money from the St. Joe Community Foundation to replace the Sound’s aging drumline equipment! Mr. Mitchell worked closely with Hank Rockwell at Playground Music and Scott Critzer to apply for the grant! Mrs. April Wilkes, executive director for the St. Joe Community Foundation, stopped by to deliver the big check! Huge thank you to the St. Joe Community Foundation for their generosity and continued investment in the community and students of South Walton.
