Members of the Uintah High Marching Band and Uintah High Orchestra have returned home from their trip to Hawaii to perform in the 2021 Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade. In addition to performing in the parade, the students had the opportunity to perform at Pearl Harbor and visit the USS Arizona Memorial where one student said, “There is an air of reverence and sorrow that buries itself deep into one's soul. The importance of this place is something that every person should hold in their mind.”
