Heavy Hearts – RIP Lilly Scott (Drum Major, 17)

Two weeks ago we posted on our instagram a request for prayers for Lilly Scott, 17, who was in a car accident and clinging to life. Sadly, she passed away last week. This weekend her band, the band she led as Drum Major, Heard County High School, will be performing to honor her.

Lilly Scott Drum Major Heard County High School

From the Heard Citizen:

“It was a little more than five years ago that the Temple High School and Heard County High School marching bands performed together before a Friday night football game between the two Region 5-AA schools at Staples Stadium in Franklin.

The two bands joined together on October 8, 2010 to play “Amazing Grace” as a pregame tribute to James “Ray Ray” Walker, a 17-year-old Temple football player that had died after a fatal bus crash earlier that week.

This Friday night the two marching bands will come together once again in the wake of tragedy.

This time they will join together at Temple High School where they will be performing in remembrance of the loss of another 17-year-old, senior Heard County drum major Lilly Scott.”
