Band Creed

Today, I Become a part of history.

I am entering an undying legacy,

Which has been standing since 1930.

I inherit all traditions,

And recognize the dedication and pride

Needed for a family,

Of those, who like me,

Are a part of something unlike any other.

I dedicate myself to maintaining excellence,

And preserving that which this legacy

Has always stood for.

Here and now,

With pride, honor, and commitment,

I stand a member,

Of the historical Hillsborough High School

Big Red Band.
