The band has a great deal of support in the community.

Senator Rhoads praised the Marching Maroons Band Boosters for their inspiration, devotion and tireless efforts over the years to assist the band in every way possible.

The Kentucky State Senate adjourned today in honor of the Madisonville North Hopkins Marching Maroons.
