Inscription.  
Conrad Hutchinson Jr. arrived in Grambling in 1952 and had a plan to make the Grambling College Marching Band the "Best Band In the Land". It didn't happen overnight and it certainly wasn't easy, but "Hutch” and his staff began molding embryo noise-makers into superb musicians and magnificent marchers. Under his leadership, the GSU Tiger Marching Band achieved worldwide fame and today, his prized unit is frequently labeled "The Best in the Land". His genius as a band master helped to put the city and university on the map.
