MARCHING TO THE TOP
The Burbank High School Bulldog Marching Band has proven time and time
again in this past year that they are definite winners.
Not only did the band receive top honors and take home the Sweepstakes
Trophy as the highest scoring band for the third year in a row in the

Wiggins is for real. He is as nice as he seems. What you see is what
you get. And his contributions over the past eight years can be seen
throughout the city.
