Boyd Huppert visits Redwood Valley Middle School to capture the Chris Hawkey Band
May 14, 2015 - After using The Underdog for a middle school video, the 5th grade class sent a letter to the Chris Hawkey Band and to their surprise, the band came to play for them. Boyd Huppert from Kare 11's, Land of 10,000 Stories,  captured the excitement. After the 5th graders all took photographs and met with Chris Hawkey, the entire Middle School got to join in on the fun. The Chris Hawkey Band played for all the students, celebrating the last day of school.
