Can The Kashmere Stage Band's Thunder Soul Save Texas Schools?

Lead in text: 
On Saturday the Kashmere High School Marching band, the modern day group of students carrying the name of the legendary Conrad O. Johnson-led award winning group of the late 60s, marched to lead the Save Texas Schools rally at the State Capitol in Austin to urge lawmakers to stop cutting funding to public schools and reign-in standardized testing.
With legislative discourse choking public education, activists, parents, and students descend on the capitol tomorrow for Save Texas Schools. The rally runs noon-1:30pm, but the march on state government begins at the Congress Ave. Bridge, 10:45am, led by the Kashmere HS Marching Band, descended from the famous Houston funkestra.
