Anthony Chosen for TN Governor's School

The Columbia Central High School Band is ecstatic to announce that Jaida Anthony was selected to participate in the Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts this summer. GSFTA is an extensive three-week program held at MTSU in June that allows Tennessee arts students to experience what it's like to study their craft at the collegiate level.


Jaida is currently a junior in the CCHS band. This June, she will be able to perform in ensembles, have private study on her instrument, study music theory, and even take some electives in instrumental music. Students also stay in the MTSU dorms and are responsible for getting themselves where they need to be a crucial part of college success.


Selection to GSFTA is extremely limited, as students from all over the state compete each year to earn a spot. Directors Trevor Baxter and Sarah Thomas are so proud of Jaida for being selected, and we know she'll have a great experience this summer!
