Rudder High RangeRettes Shine & Advanced Academics Inspire in Bryan ISD

Entertaining audiences since 2008 The Rudder High School RangeRettes are an award winning group of dancers, serving as ambassadors for Rudder High School, Bryan ISD and the city of Bryan, Texas. RangeRettes Director Kelsie Salem stopped in at the KEOS studios to tell us more about the group.  As the Drill Team for Rudder High they’re the performers seen at half time during athletic events and at numerous shows and events during the year.  They provide service to the community, serve as leaders in their school, and compete in the early spring at the regional, state and national level.  The  5th Annual Holiday Extravaganza will be this Saturday, December 12th at 7:00 P.M. in the Rudder high School Auditorium.  Held in conjunction with the Rudder High School Cheerleaders, VOX COR and Theatre Departments the RangeRettes will help spread holiday cheer and entertain.
