Central High School had once been known for its Marching Eagles. But like other high schools in the Kansas City School District, its music program was whittled away due to a lack of funding and declining enrollment. Principal Anthony Madry, once a top college musician and a former band director, hired band director Osmond Fisher to resurrect the instrumental music program and the Marching Eagles. Six-weeks into the school year, the students are progressing and plan to make their debut during the school's homecoming on Saturday, the first time in 10 years Central will have a marching band on the field.
