With the great things happening at Toledo Public Schools, it was only a matter of time before there was a TPS Proud song.
TPS Proud is now available for 99 cents on Amazon and can be ordered by clicking here: http://www.amazon.com/Tps-Proud-feat-Chris-Byrd/dp/B0102W9E16/ref=sr_1_1?s=dmusic&ie=UTF8&qid=1435058673&sr=1-1&keywords=Tps+proud!
The song was produced locally, thanks to the creative support of Mr. Chris Byrd, a TPS graduate and music producer, and Ms. Trudie Neely, a counselor at Rogers High School.
Dr. Romules Durant, CEO/Superintendent of Toledo Public Schools, and several students served as back up singers. The lyrics highlight the district’s mission and student success. There are also a nods to Dr. Durant, including one about his signature embroidered dress shirts.
The song’s jazzy tune will be incorporated into the district’s advertising and promotional activities and each high school band will play it during all home athletic events starting this fall.
Local media received a special preview of the song on Monday, June 22, at Rogers High School.
