Congressman Mike Bost visited O’Fallon High School last Thursday to recognize the Marching Panthers on their success this season. Bost awarded Dr. Melissa Gustafson-Hinds with an Award of Congressional Recognition for their performance at U of I and their winning of the Governor’s Cup for the second straight year. Additionally, he presented the school with a flag that flew over the Capitol Building in honor of the Marching Panthers.
