Before he left Collinsville, Mr. Worthey was a great band director. It was a wonderful time. We had a small group of people in the band, but we had a lot of fun.
I remember one instance specifically which was the first time I stayed after school for a football game. Most of the band decided to stay; this included Elijah, Marcus, Amanda, and I (more people came over time as well). We just hung out, walked over to the Dollar General and got snacks, and went back to the batting cages to relax and talk. It was simple, but it was a memorable experience, especially now that we've lost Elijah. I will hold those times dear into my heart forever.
