ATLANTA (AP) - Seven Georgia high school students have been chosen to travel to New York to march in the famous Thanksgiving parade sponsored by Macy's.

The students will be among the 185 musicians in the Great American Marching Band in the 87th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Macy's says the Great American Marching Band has honored the country's finest high school musicians since 2006.

The band is comprised of students from all 50 states and is directed by Auburn University's Richard Good and assistant director, Barry Houser, from the University of Illinois.

One student was selected from each of the following Georgia high schools: Buford High School, Columbus High School, Dalton High School, Forsyth Central High School, Starr's Mill High School, Troup County Comprehensive High School, and Warner Robins High School.
