He Did It

On Feb. 8, 2019, Marshall County’s own Dan Little ran his way into the history books, and the “Guiness Book of World Records.”

“He did it!” was on the lips of every resident in Marshall County and many more who were cheering Dan on from miles away.

For seven days while Dan was flying around the world, running on each continent, and bearing witness to the incredible strength of the human spirit and willpower; everyone who either knew Dan, or knew about Dan, were waiting patiently for the post of Dan’s finishing time for each race.

When the reports came in that he had completed all seven marathons, under the cutoff time, many were beaming with pride.

Madill High Band Director Receives Award

The Madill High School Band Director, Kendal Hasty, was awarded the “South Central Oklahoma Band Directors Association Band of the Year” award for 2019. The recipient of the prestigious award is strictly by nomination – whether it be by a parent, administrator, or fellow band director.

Hasty said he did not earn the award by himself, and there were various reasons that led up to his nomination. One of the reasons was an increase in enrollment in the band program. “When I took the job, we had 63 students enrolled in band, grades 6 through 12,” Hasty said. “Today, enrollment in band is hovering close to 350 students. Five years ago, our marching band consisted of 42 students, and this past fall we had 150 in our marching band.”
