At Friday’s home basketball game, 43 members of the K-State Catband joined the WHS pep band in cheering on the Chargers. WHS band director Jaime Rogers thought the event was beneficial for WHS students. “Our students enjoyed having the college band,” Rogers said. “I think some were a bit star struck and some just jumped right in and interacted with them.”
