Okay, so they say there are 2 sides to every story, I say there are 3 sides to every story!  There's 1 person's side, the other person's side, and then there's the actual truth.  The hardest part is, knowing the truth can be very hard.  When all you have is someone's story to go off, you can only take the knowledge you're given and base your judgement off that.  Well a mother of one of the students at River Road High that got one of the "Worst Band Member Award" certificates called me to say that there was nothing funny about this, and her son was not involved in the "practical joke" that was allegedly organized by the students.

Mrs. Hodges called me and said that her son had no idea of what was to happen in band class the day he received the award and was completely embarrassed in front of the entire class when he received it from the band director.

Yet, I got a call from a band student saying that all the band students and the recipients of the award were all aware of the situation and it was all fun and games?

I'm not going to take any sides on this story, I'm just giving you the information that I'm getting, and allowing you to make up your own mind.

Was there malicious intent behind this?  Or was this an innocent joke?  YOU DECIDE!

Hear the conversation between me and Mrs. Hodges below.
