The Marching Tar Heels received an
invitation from the presidential inaugu

“I was obviously delighted and hon

Fuchs, director of the Marching Tar

the sole representative from North
Fuchs said the hard work of the 305
band members and a positive image as
a first-class organization helped in the

be mindful of the image they present to

Fuchs also said the band’s participa

The Marching Tar Heels have been chosen to perform in the
inauguration parade for President-elect George W. Bush on Jan. 20.
Fuchs said the band has attended
three Final Fours in the past four years
and marched in the famous Macy’s
Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1993.
This experience has been crucial dur

Fuchs describes as a “major logistical
“It has been and will continue to be
an amazing two weeks,” he said. “It’s

The band’s members received notice

The ranking were compiled from

college presidents, faculty members

The actual rating was calculated
based on the average academic rating
from the survey, the average social rat

graduates at the university and the per
centage of black graduates.
The HBCU’s scores were adjusted to

“We’re also going to have a couple

“We will use more of a military

Rathdone said, “It’s an incredible
privilege to go to Washington and

show him what we can do.”
