It's ashame that the news media reports about DeMatha today on the news. But no mention of Northwestern Senior High School Band. Don't get me wrong I'm proud that DeMatha was mentioned. I'm certain there could have been just a few more minutes to mention Northwestern too. The public schools in Prince George's County get no respect when due.
