She competed in auditions for the All-District Band on Nov. 29th at Pike Central High School.
The Band will rehearse for four days prior to the Jan. 15th concert which is open to the public.
Sarah said she is looking forward to the experience as "a way to get better playing the flute, and to make some new friends".
Paintsville Band Director Andy Milner said he was "very proud of Sarah's accomplishment", and she would make a good representative of the Paintsville Band program.
