This past Tuesday, April 8, the Mid-Prairie High School Jazz Band placed in the top eight in class 2A at the Iowa Jazz Championships in Des Moines. This is the highest the jazz band has ever placed at the Iowa Jazz Championships. Placing in the top eight is very special because only bands in the top eight come home from the Iowa Jazz Championships with trophies.

Mid-Prairie was competing with 15 of the top jazz bands in class 2A from all across the state of Iowa. Members of the Mid-Prairie High School jazz band include:

Seniors: Christian Johnson, Mycailah Salvador, Austin Schlabaugh, Jonah Van Roekel, Hayley Weber, and Mason Wiles

Juniors: Sadie Goll, Haylee Marner, Anna Mayer, Emily Meader, Madisen Nielsen, Andy Roberts,
