On Tuesday, October 22nd - the Band Scholars of our Fighting Tiger Grrr...Pep Band [aka FTGPB] had the rare opportunity to perform for the Valvoline World Conference. What a beautiful day it was - what a grand and glorious venue for us to showcase the versatility and excellence of our Tiger Bands specifically and Georgetown College collectively. It was truly a day when we lived up to our historic epitaph of "Music for all Occasions"

Be it one of our extended Grrr...Excursions - or a mini-excursion as was the Valvoline Event today - we always take a moment for our Departure Devotionals - today led by S.P.A [Elder Scholar Emily] and S.P.I.T [Fledgling David]
