2017, A Year in Review

 As we face the New, and exciting Year, let’s take a moment to look back at all that OCHS has accomplished in 2017. The year opened with the winding down of theBuster Kentontemporary exhibit and the introduction of Step in Time: Marching Bands of Osceola County. The exhibit opening featured a fascinating talk from retired band instructor, Larry O’Grady, and a scintillating performance from a portion of the Osceola High School drum core.  OCHS was off to a great start!
