“I want to congratulate Randy Adams, his assistants and the Marching Maroons on the outstanding legacy of excellence they have established. I applaud them for the distinction they have brought to their school, to Madisonville, to Hopkins County, and to our great Commonwealth,” Senator Rhoads said.

The Marching Maroons, under the direction of Adams and his assistants, Alan Emerson, Cory Mullins and Katie Herrenbruck, competed Oct. 26, 2013 to capture their ninth consecutive class AAAA Grand Championship title by defeating several other finalists with a score of 90.86.

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.

Senator Rhoads represents the 6th senatorial district, which includes Butler, Hopkins, Muhlenberg and Ohio counties.
