Several Washougal High School band and choir students were recently accepted into the annual National Association for Music Educator’s All-Northwest/All-State honor groups.  This is the largest combined group of students from WHS to qualify. To be accepted, students must complete a rigorous audition process and compete against thousands of other applicants from Washington,Oregon,Idaho,Wyoming,Montana, and Alaska.  This is one of the highest honors a high school musician can receive.
