Naming of the Music Wing at MCHS

Superintendent Elmer Thomas, at the request of the administration at Madison Central High School, has asked the Board to consider naming the music wing at MCHS the H. Brent Barton Music Wing. This name would be in honor of former Band Director H. Brent Barton, who retired from education last year. Under Mr. Barton's direction, the band program at MCHS became one of the state's premier programs. Mr. Barton's bands have won three KMEA State Championships. He certainly built a tremendous marching and concert band program. The official recommendation for the naming of the music wing will be voted on by the Board of Education at the July 13 regular meeting.
