“We are very proud of Sam and all of her accomplishments,” Ed Hauser said. “Sam is not only a great flute player, but an excellent role model in our band program. She is dedicated and has very high standards for both her academics and musicianship. Making All-State Band is one of the highest accomplishments for a band student and we are thrilled that Sam will represent Owensboro Catholic at All-State.”
