Pritchett, Serrano achieve top performances

W.H. Ford High School’s Jaycob Pritchett, right, and Tad Serrano were selected as UIL Outstanding Performers at the 2017 Texas State Solo-Ensemble Tenor-Bass Voice Solo Contest.

Out of 100,000 students participating in the regional UIL music contests and the 25,000 musicians who performed at TSSEC, only two to three percent of the solo performances earned the distinguished honor of being recognized as an Outstanding Performer.

State Director of Music Dr. Bradley N. Kent said, "This achievement is truly a mark of musical excellence." FHS Choir is under the direction of Judith McCarty. "I'm extremely proud of these two men. This is one of the highest honors bestowed on musicians competing at the high school level," she said. Both students are recent graduates of W.H. Ford High School.
