The North Lamar and Paris Marching Bands were honored during the Crosstown Showdown Football Games when Mayor Dr. AJ Hashmi presented the drum majors keys to the city for advancing to state.
"I cannot tell you how proud I am to be mayor of the city that calls two of these fantastic high school bands home,” said Mayor Hashmi. “On behalf of the entire City of Paris, to the members, staff, and parents of the Paris High School and North Lamar High School bands, I extend my congratulations, and wish you the best of luck Monday. And in recognition of your accomplishments, I award you this Key to the City!”
