  • Congratulations to BVMS director Susan Schuman and co-hosting the ABA convention in Biloxi this past week. This very prestigious conference was a huge undertaking and great honor to be in Mississippi. Thank you Mrs. Schuman for your dedication and commitment to bands not only in our school district but across the nation.

    Congratulations to the Admiral Winds for a very successful performance in Thibodaux Saturday. Your commanding 1st place victory and increased score from the last competition are a testament to your work. Thank you staff for your tireless efforts in providing the best vehicle for our students.
    Congratulations to the JV Winter Guard and another improved score. Your work and efforts were well rewarded with a 3rd place victory.
    Congratulations to the Varsity Winter Guard on a monumental leap in your score as well. With a month left in the season your 78.55 is only 1.45  points away from the all time score of Gulfport Winter Guard in the Scholastic A class. We encourage you all to keep pushing and reaching for your best performance.
