The 2021 Midwest Pipe Band Association season point standings have been tallied, and one Missouri Military Academy cadet has landed atop the list. Cadet Pipe Major and Delta Company Commander Clayton Nelson took home Champions Supreme wins in both Grade 3 Light Music and Grade 3 Piobaireachd, a reflection of his hard work and dedication to the instrument.
Champions Supreme points are accumulated during the regular piping season, based on piping contests held throughout the Midwest. Individuals and bands must be registered with the MWPBA to compete.
Cadet Nelson, who competes at the grade 3 level, has been trained by MMA's Pipe Major Brian Donaldson since he started on the pipes.
Congratulations, Cadet Nelson, on your accomplishments!
