Clara Garvey has been chosen as one of the top 10 high school flute players in the state of Missouri.

Garvey beat out 130 other flute players across the Show-Me State.

Auditions for the Missouri All-State Band took place Saturday Dec. 1.

This is the Kirksville Tiger Band's first year in awhile to have a student selected.

Garvey says she's honored to be a role model for her group, especially since this is her senior year.

"It makes me feel really good. I'm glad that I could make it, glad that I could show them someone that made it. We haven't gotten someone in it for a couple of years and I'm glad they can see that. I hope we can get more people in it in the next few years," said Garvey.

Garvey will start practice with the band starting in January.
