GARLAND, Texas -- Not a day goes by that Lakeview Centennial High School Junior Ben Scott doesn't think about the storm.
"My bedroom (was) caved in and I (could) see outside, and that was the first initial thought of 'wow that just happened,'" Scott said.
On Dec.ember 26, 2015 a tornado rolled over Garland killing nine people.
"When I got back to school, band was something to take my mind off of what was going on around me," he said.
For Scott and many of his classmates band was a welcome distraction. While students welcomed the distraction, teachers saw an opportunity for healing.
Under the direction of the Director of Bands Christopher Loyd, students composed a piece -- a musical tribute to the tornado that took so much from their town.
One that they would play at nearly every football game this year. A piece that was written because every student impacted by the storm agreed.
"I'm sure it was a very tough decision but in the in end I think that everyone decided that it was a great way to pay tribute to our community, that it was the right thing to do," Lyod said.
But just like a powerful storm -- this show has run its course. This Friday will be the last performance.
"Everybody still has to move forward and I would say that finishing out the season and doing it one more time is a good way to give our students and our program closure."
